I'm a little concerned about your project since I do host a number of large
subparts which are actually proxied services, and I think even a gentle bot
going methodically through them would not be pleasant for the other side
(especially if you mean to regularly update your snapshot).

Veronica-2 doesn't actually download content other than non-local selectors
in a directory to get around this problem since it doesn't index the
content in any case, just the titles and selector data.

I do support robots.txt, see
