Why not use the script "distsync" from
"http://dpartialmirror.sourceforge.net";. Even if it's called "partial"
it synchronizes everything up to a full mirror. And it does everything
you need from

 - synchronize exactly what you wish, i.e. a complete i386-Woody.
 - moving referenced packages of any dist (i.e. Potato) to the
referencing dist (i.e. Woody)
 - moving all packages completely into the pool

and a lot more. I.e. it keeps a mirror always consisted, even during updating.
