Dangerous.  Mirroring is about allowing the same archive to be read
from different places.  Writing to multiple places is just another
name for branch'n'merging, and solving the issues involved with that
is one of the original motivations for arch.  Hacking the mirror won't

The only thing that worries me about the local archive, backup mirror
strategy is that I don't see how he automates the push-mirror any more
effectively than under the current situation with CVS.  It's still
something that needs to happen when the network comes up, and if
that's typically at the beginning of his session, he's still going to
have issues with resource usage at an inconvenient time.
