Well, nobody's moaned that this is a bad idea or broken (while a few
have moaned that the regular mirror is timing out - a problem I hope
will go away if that cron job dies, as it makes my load average go very
high while it's running :-), so I say we go for it.

Mario... I'm pointing at
the svnsync mirror; please kill the cronjob whenever you're ready :-)

And, if anything's broken, please tell me so I can reverse it ASAP!

If it all works, I'll write up a "How to set up an SVN mirror" guide on
the wiki. svnsync doesn't need any special powers on the remote server,
so in principle, people could set up SVN mirrors (and henrietta!)
willy-nilly, either as a local mirror, or to offer to be an official
mirror. That'd be neat!
