You only need to mirror two directories for the web. That's not much more work
than one. I don't know the reason for the split (I'll look into it). If, on
the other hand, you don't like the fact that cgi scripts only run on master,
that's a different story.
If you are unhappy with the use of symbolic links in the ftp archive, bring
it up on debian-devel. It has been discussed many times and is currently
being discussed again.

I set up a mirror of both the ftp and web archives in about 5 minutes.
I don't see what the difficulty is. Of course, it took almost a day for
the mirror to finish when started from scratch. :)
