Oh, you could get the inode numbers by doing an ls -iR in addition to
the ls -lR that mirror does anyway. But you still don't have the
device numbers, so you can't see mount point boundaries.

Such directories can be identified easily (by looking at the link
count in ls -l output), but still you don't which file to link to...
The only thing I could think of would be to turn symlinks into hard
links on the mirror site.
