Probably not, honestly - or at the very least, not until debarchiver does
them by default, since that's what I have available to use.

I'll note that because of the firewall setup and limitations iwth SCP, I'm
strongly rethinking how viable the archive is - I cannot set it up so that
FTP works sanely, due to the fundamental problems with the protocol itself,
and SCP does not, AFAIK, allow for limiting an account to file-copies and
disallowing shell access reliably (so I can't make an anonymous-upload

I can't honestly imagine that the load is heavy enough that mirroring it
would be a terribly useful excercise in the first place, but that's neither
here nor there. I suppose you could try apt-move...
