I seem to have missed most of this discussion, so the following may not
be relevant.

Directories that are used as links should contain index.html as well as
index.*.html. This is because an available variant with no language extension
is displayed (index.html in this case) if no language can be agreed upon.
This is why all the index.html are symlinks on the web site,
   index.html -> index.en.html

The mirrors are a royal pain. They really tie our hands when it comes to
choosing how to implement things. Are they worth it? I'm not convinced.
