I am playing with the idea of setting up such a mirror. I mean, I guess
my dedicated server can take the moderate load mainly triggered by
myself ... Only, with frequent releases of bloatware graphical
frameworks stuff, I will run out of space quickly (no terabyte disk
included, yet ... but I might order one for the fun of it).

If multiversion spells didn't exist, extracting the possibly needed
sources would be easy.

This would be something to change. Well, at least when a guru adds a
new source / updates with quill, we theoretically have a point where
one could nick the name of the source and add it to some list without
much overhead.

The puzzle is: I did that! I guess itself is relaying to that
server and it is crapping out just like the Source Mage servers are
right now.

Alrighty then,
