Ok, the 404 helps, but I'm trying to think in lines of mirrors to help you
guys out.  I'm with XMission.com, and we would be very happy to put up
some space and bandwidth to add to the auto updater mirrors.  The only set
back is that Apache 2.0 and some other web servers tend to have pretty
weak bandwidth limiting modules.  Where as with FTP, the ability to tune
the client numbers and download speeds is much more refined.

Just wondering what the work would be to make it work of FTP also.
