just another idea: Don't invent the wheel again...:)

Why don't we set up a world-wide cluster of ZEO-clients? The ZEO-server 
lives at Zope.org and mirrors from around the world will connect as 
ZEO-clients. So we have REAL mirrors with all content/management without 
muddling with syncing via filesystem-exports/imports etc.

To sync the Zope-Instances (the python-sources) (ZEO likes that...:)) we 
can simply use CVS.

Setting this up should be no big problem, I guess...;)

And this way the whole game would be a real example for: Zope rocks!
