Bug#524988: debmirror: man page enhancement/bandwidth limit

Package: debmirror
Version: 20070123
Severity: wishlist

Debmirror works for me (mirroring lenny and etch and squeeze), but the 
manpage looks kinda outdated, and at first i got the impression, this 
could be software soon to be deprecated.

I think, the newest debian-version mentioned in the manpage should not 
be sarge, but squeeze or so, and what I really missed was a section 
about return codes. (So I could run debmirror from a script).

And another enhancement, which i would like to see in the program is a 
means to limit the bandwidth which it uses while mirroring.
