There are workarounds for this.  For example, find a volunteer, send
them a SASE and a blank CD-ROM and request a copy of the .git
directory.  This costs only a few minutes of your time and a few
dollars in S&H.  Or maybe the FSF could make a few bucks with a
service like this.

It might also be faster to rsync the .git directory, although if the
.git directory is well-packed it shouldn't make much difference.

As you suggest, a CVS mirror of the official public repo could be
maintained as a convenience to nondevelopers.
