The mirror script I'm using (which I got from maswan, who is running
ftp.se.debian.org, our upstream) does two rsync rounds.

1. Update all .debs, don't delete anything.
2. Update Packages files and delete all .debs that no longer exists upstream.

This takes care of the problem; I'd be surprised if the other mirrors didn't
take approximately the same route.
