There isn't anything native. You can do virtual directories within IIS but not programmatically (again, natively) so it would be a hassle.
I'll just plan on putting up a centos box (using some spare parts from my girlie robot) and host the mirror that way. This only means it will be a few weeks before I come online... no big deal.

Does IIS have something like apache's Alias directive? If so, filesystem
symlinking could be translated to webserver aliasing, same thing done in
a different way.
