I realy don't like this complexity.  I can add quite a few more
complications, e.g. unique Hurd boot-floppies which only exist on the
master CD images.  These would always have to be fetched from somewhere.

I suspect that a hacked PIK might be the easiest way to go.  This would
probably give us about 80% complete images which could be rsync'ed.
