I don't mean to imply you not knowing it - I am asking whether the servlet
is available for setting up our own mirrors - I apologize for not being
clear.  When I said "it's probably not hard to figure out..." I meant I can
probably determine what it does without access to the source code (in case I
need to hack something for my own mirror).

I am simply trying to figure out the easiest way to setup a local
cache/mirror, withot a ton of work on your end or my end ;)

I am experimenting to see if I can redirect the planet through a proxy
servlet - if this is possible, then the work is probably minimal...
