..one thing I haven't found, is an easy way to weed out bad files off
my (big bad disk, replacement ordered) mirror after fsck's, my plan is
use md5sum down the debian/tree and weed out all the bad files, instead
of wasting another week re-downloading all the good stuff (right now
I have 71GB of i386 and source) to build a full mirror.  Pointers?
