because it works well to have one central place that mirror admins can
go to at any point to sync. as admins we also have to deal with catastrophic
disk failure and it is good to know you can go back to sync against cdimage
with the images there. that said, i am guessing that all of cdimage would
comfortably fit now on a single 120G drive. if it is only providing a sync
point for mirrors then i am not sure if it needs more than one (or two,
to do raid1) drive for this.

by at least a couple of people fly past debian-cd. wonder what happened :-/
