I've talked about this with James Troup before. He seemed pretty
receptive to speeding it up to something like twice a day, didn't seem
to feel it would hit the mirrors much worse. It's possible he may still
be waiting on SCC splitting up the base set of arches or the like before
revisiting this.

(BTW, please note that when I or this proposal talks about the "dinstall
run", we're using the circa 1998 definition that includes "mirror sync".
The dinstall program itself aready runs every 15 minutes.)
