Nope. Currently, I'm maintaining a small (~550MB) mirror of testing, and
hopefully, I can add a smaller (~100MB) stable mirror to that pretty soon. 
Therefore, it would be nice if there was a tool to create packagelists from
the pool for each distribution.

Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to start coding.
