apt-ftparchive is causing a bit too much load for any significant increase

Yes; one of the specific requirements is that ftp.d.o will /not/ be a
full mirror, in order to make it trivially easy for people to mirror
Debian usefully without filling up their disk.

Sorry to be a bit terse and undetailed, but I should have a fair bit
more to say over the next week and a half or so.
