Why not go the full way? What I've outlined in  is too obvious to
never have been thought before, but what is the reason not to do it
I have no idea one way or another; neither Andi nor I are involved in the
mirror implementation details.
There's no particular reason not to do it that way; and indeed it might
well end up being done that way. Or it might end up being done a
slightly different way again. I don't think any of those details are
crucial or complicated enough to need to be nutted out months in advance.
