the cr/ to os/ and previous os/ + updates/ hardlinking into the new os/
release tree solves that problem ( I think ) - but it does not help for
isos/ - other repos like plus and extras are mostly just moved along.

and we cant really rely on the 700 mode on mirror-root/ since lots of
mirrors dont run in a way that makes it usable ( I guess quite a few do,
but not all ). Maybe the trick here is to seed up msync well in advance
to once QA says GO, its a matter of opening up rsync from say 30 odd
machines to the public mirrors.
