while i would like this, it leads in some ways to quite complex setups.

e.g currently i have apache.planetmirror.com.

in the past, references to the httpd project were available at


if we split all the projects off, we will now have:


i am not totally opposed to this, but it does add a layer of complexity - instead
of one virtual host, i will now have to setup perhaps 5, or 10.

yes please.  one of the more annoying things from my POV is that
a lot of users who *used* to use a local mirror to use the online documentation
don't bother anymore.  

basically, the requirement i have as an apache mirror is that i would like
to maintain all of the apache content locally.  exactly how that's structured
