I agree this would help with the search but I do have some objections: - Anyone who wants to set up a mirror needs mySQL. Some places, especially in the UK, charge a lot for database access and some do not use mySQL. This is a potential restriction on the mirroring process. YMMV on how important you think this is. - This would either require the remote access script to do database lookups to obtain the files (which in turn relies on your hoster not firewalling the mySQL port), or some hairy scripting is needed for the RAS to invoke a script on the server, which then trundles away to get the file(s) and sent them back to the RAS. This is as opposed to scriptname: to-url rejoin [ "http://" repositryname path package ] scriptdata: read scriptname in the RAS. Just MO.
