Just one..  Please make sure it is possible to feed more than one package
list to this thing somehow.  Some of us have more than one machine with
different package lists.  Something that supports both that and partial
mirroring I could really use.  Actually, if I had a download manager with
rate limiting, I could set it to about half-way and do the partial mirror
on this machine's slow link..

But the ability to feed it two or three package lists is definitely a
plus.  I've not seen anything that does rate limiting on downloads other
than proxies or their like.
