The main motivation for not doing this is most people who will be able
to provide a good mirror with a nice pipe is unlikely to want to run a
ZEO Client but instead is already running instances of some server
(although Im sure someone will prove me wrong... I know I wouldn't mind
my own desktop ZEO client of Zope.org ;) ).
For example running ZEO isn't practical on Sourceforge. However rsyncing
files is a well established wheel ;)
