I've no objections, and as I mentioned earlier there are already a
number of other mirrors syncing directly from me. I've got a tier2
rsync module in place already for CentOS so this would mainly be a
matter of populating the username/passwords for the module and getting
those shipped off to those who request access. That would get you
another 4gbps (currently) and quite a bit more geographic diversity.
