Ian, if you do decide to do number 2, could you please give us a little
notice by posting to devel beforehand?  I just dont want to have to
delete and re-mirror the 1.0 stuff (as well as the other mirrors who are
using a 2nd mirror to get 1.0 currently).  We can just manually mv the
debian-1.0 dir back and it wont delete it...

Thanks :)
