IIRC this was discussed on the debian-www list a few years ago (I used
to follow the list when I ran a mirror; we were trying to help develop
this "website mirror" as well (well, we were helping inasmuch as we
had a machine with apache and rsync and 16G of debian archives :))

I think James Treacy was trying to get this going, but there were some
technical issues.  I don't remember all the details.  They may be in
the list archives.
