Yes, you are right, these have been and are broken, at least some of them. But 
the question was about full SID images. I personally have some 
non-internetworked machines which are upgraded through these broken sid 
images from ftp.fsn.hu and this is the only way to bring the new packages to 
these machines... The only problem I can see with ftp.fsn.hu images is the 
"too big template/jigdo file" for some of them which renders them as 
unusable, the rest is ok imho. Is it possible to generate and support full 
SID jigdo/template files at cdimage.debian.org or there are 
space/bandwidth/cpu power problems around that?
