Option 1 would work fine for us, provided you're willing to be
moderately flexible about rsync module names and paths -- the rsync
module our push mirroring system provides at the moment will be named
something like "linuxfromscratch", and it'll point at the root of your
mirror, not the data directory.

If this is a really serious problem, we could work around it (the
configuration for our modified rsyncd is autogenerated), but I'd guess
we're probably not the only mirror site serving multiple mirrors off
the same machines.
