I know the mirror admin of one of the tier-2-Mirrors. His box runs
RedHat, and mirrors Redhat, SuSe, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, kernel.org and a
bunch of other sites, and he uses plain rsync.

I am not even sure whether ftp2.de.debian.org even pulls tricks to
mirror the pool first and dists last.

How can tht be accomplished without reading the Packages files?

I hope so, but our ftpmasters seem to be committed to reduce archive
sites by completely dropping arches.
