What amazes me is that nobody is able or willing to provide any figures.
So I guess no provider of an rsync server is interested in this subject
and therefore it can't be a big problem.
I'm asking any provider of an ftp/rsync Debian server if any comparable
figures could be extracted from the server log. Or if anyone could
measure how much CPU load the download of the Packages/Packages.gz files
