Hmm... I think the current view is it's better to have a mirror with a
different directory than no mirror at all. it's easily dealt with from
the website side of things but just generating the appropriate links. do
you have a breakdown on what the official directory structure ought to
look like, and how many mirrors would be affected if we dropped them for

(note even if we don't shut them off, i do think we could suggest a
"preferred directory structure" in the non-existent "howto mirror" doc
that dave and i send out)
