Well, I'm not.  And I also don't use Debian, so I don't have any debian
files at all.  I'm just a vendor, and need the images to sell them.

This statement is meant to be true when you're already a mirror right?  I
can only speak for me (of course), but if I can download an ISO image with
90kb/s (that's how fast my line is) from a mirror, I fail to see a speed
advantage in first downloading all the files (which I'd rm after the image
has been built anyway) with pik at a speed of 90kb/s.

Uhm, rsync is very nice, I don't have a problem with this.  I have a
"problem" with trying to get everyone to use pik2.

In fact, wouldn't it take longer/require more manual work using pik2 to get
all the 3 images?
