No worries.

My plan was to release a mirror tool as a planet package so others can setup
their own mirrors as well.  I agree that this might not be the long term
solution, but without having something in place such package does not make
sense for others, so I guess that would have to be delayed unless you want
to accept the patch interim or until we found a solution you can accept.

I am happy to help out here.  If you can let me know what sort of server
side issues that you are thinking about (I more or less got the mirror &
proxy figured out - just need to implement it) then we can collaborate.
