OK, I set it up, and it works fine!
I do filter out the other simlinked directories, and just mirror 

The other thing that isn't perfect is that the Packages ->
symlink gets flattened, so I get two copies of the Packages file.
No big deal. I guess I could exclude Packages, and make my own local
and tell mirror not to delete it. This might work.
Has anybody bothered to do this, or is there another way to not get two
physical copies of Packages?
