If they're willing to take on mirroring beo, it can be grabbed using rsync
from the deouk box - this is how jason andrade of planetmirror is mirroring
it and keeping it up-to-date.  If they can throttle their bandwidth for the
mirror, 30-40 gig traffic a month is easily achievable.  This right now is
the best way people can help out in terms of reducing *eo traffic use.
