If it supports ssh, you should be able to get an sftp setup running,
perhaps with some (pretty trivial) "local customization" of the tla
sftp transport.

If you can then sftp to a directory that anonymous users can read via
ordinary http, you'll be all set for making a RO mirror.

So the question is: can you fudge up sftp to your hosting provider?
