My survey suggests almost every mirror that runs an http deamon has
something usefull on the main page that is not debian-related. 

So serving under debian is more that likely the best - unless I mis
understand the Alias directive..

I have a list of 12 mirrors now, and few of them serve under /debian,
it's all long weird stuff so I don't think it matters much.
