Have we approached any of the high-bandwidth Universities or OpenSource outfits
to see if they would be willing to provide mirror services?  I see so many
run-of-the-mill projects that have mirror services all over the world. It sure
seems like a favorable project like TDE would be a prime candidate to be
accepted and helped by some of these institutions.

For my learning, if somebody can mirror, would all that would need to be done is
to have some cron job push TDE to the mirror to keep it updated, or is there
more to it than that? I see a mirror as just (storage + band width). For TDE,
that's about 8G in storage. Is that about it?
