If you use rsync to mirror, you don't have to mirror pool/ if you use the
--copy-unsafe-links option. At least, that's possible as long as symlinks in
the "regular" tree exist (which I suppose will continue to be the case for
potato). In the future, pool/ is supposed to contain everything from stable to
unstable for all architectures, so mirroring specific portions of the archive
will get a bit harder. Also see
