Does this open up any security issues for our mirrors?  Presumably 
mirror hosting providers will have prevented .htaccess files from having 
any effect, if they want to have complete control over their servers? 
In which case this won't solve the problem, but it won't do any harm on 
those mirrors, but will fix other mirrors.

Matt.
