Um, various not very convincing reasons which all boil down to the fact 
that some further work on my part is needed before anything will happen in 
that area. ;-)

ATM, it's a higher priority for me to get the jigdo GUI app into a usable

Most of it is also available inside some package or other, the most notable

You mean, can it save the files from the fallback server somewhere? Not
really, you'd probably have to fish them out of your HTTP proxy's cache if
you really needed them. But if you use jigdo's update feature, they will be
found, so e.g. you won't need to download them again when you update your
3.0r1 images to 3.0r2.
