unfortunately the template mirror conversation got caught up in details and
nobody took the lead on implementing a solution.

citrix has been pinging me every couple months to say 'dude, we need to
remove the dependency on download.citrix.com', but i have not had the
cycles to get in and solve the problem.  the shutdown of that is imminent
right now, so we need to solve it asap.
