if you're a mirror site (and there are a lot of debian mirrors) then you
already have (almost all of) the 1.8G of debian locally anyway.

from my testing, it is always faster for a full mirror site to download
via pik2 and then rsync over the top, than just rsync over old images,
or worse, just download them from cdimage.

from an end user point, i guess i don't agree with trying to get users
to use pik2 or rsync.. but that's just me.
