The problem with this is that you have efectively made your mirror non 
usable for office's and orgaisations that only have 1 ip address to the 
world. There are quite a few of them.

This sort of a pricess would work better if it was to check and only 
work against an ip of its the same filename being requested rather than 
overall connections.
