Ok. I have put an initial version of *mirror* up for download if you
guys would like to try it out and let me know what you think.
I have not implemented exclude/refuse lists yet. Let me know if you are
interested in hosting it on the DragonFly site for updating dcvs.
Otherwise, I might put it up on SourceForge or Googles project hosting
site and/or add it as another project page on our hightek.org site, if
I can find the time to setup a web page for it :-).
