What's wrong with splitting into ftp-full-monty.d.o, carrying all archs,
including the popular ones, and ftp.d.o, carrying only the most popular
subset? This way, there's no need to mirror from both of them, and
duplication is kept to a minimum. Slightly increased traffic from the
fullblown server is the only drawback I see compared to the ports
