Comment(by duncan):

 Note that we've got a mirror client for use with the new hackage server.
 I'm sure we could adapt this to also work with local dumb mirrors.

 See http://code.haskell.org/hackage-server/

 Note that the future hackage-server impl is not based on a directory tree
 of package tarballs, so we will not be able to provide rsync in future
 anyway, but the http mirror client approach will work fine. So I'm
 reluctant to provide rsync now.
