I don't think we will. The only thing guaranteed to be present on
ftp.*.debian.org is the debian archive in /debian.
I really wished we had a policy that asked operators of ftp.*.d.o hosts
to not expose anything else on that particular vhost, and use other
hostnames for other repositories, but I don't think we do.
