Replying to my own posting, I have found what appears to be a suitable method
using lftp, which can do http transfers.  I still don't know why it only works
when I mirror the pool and dist subdirectories separately:

   lftp -c 'open http://www.debian-multimedia.org/pool; mirror -x .*-powerpc.*\
   -x .*-mips.* -x .*-arm.* -x .*m68k.* -x .*sparc.* -x .*amd64.* -x .*ia64.* \
   -x .*-alpha.* -x .*_alpha.* -x .*hppa.*  --verbose=3 --delete . \

   lftp -c 'open http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dists; mirror -x .*-powerpc.*\
   -x .*-mips.* -x .*-arm.* -x .*m68k.* -x .*sparc.* -x .*amd64.* -x .*ia64.* \
   -x .*-alpha.* -x .*_alpha.* -x .*hppa.*  --verbose=3 --delete . \
