I see.  I think it's not a good solution in general -- it's often much
more convenient to use the canonical archive, even when it's remote, and
sometimes it's necessary (e.g., when you need R/W access).  When I first
started using arch, I made a bunch of local mirrors, but I've since
deleted them all, because in fact keeping them updated &c was more
annoying than whatever network delay there was.  I now think of them as
`tools for special cases,' not something one should use by default,
especially as a first introduction.

We live, as we dream -- alone....
