I fail to see why --no-cache is orthogonal to your problem. If people
are on a slow line and need to get to your stuff often (or even
occasionally) they should run their own mirror. Thus you can put cached
revisions in _your_ mirror, but people are free to only mirror the
cached revisions if they want to.
