The remaining problem is uploading/transfering generated 'stuff' (is 
that neutral enough? ;-)

'Pushing' information towards ASF equipment would require us to store 
private keys on, whether this is done using scp, cvs, and 
whatelse. Bad practice.

Having ASF equipment 'pull' information from us requires us to do some 
further setup: run rsync as a daemon, or store generated stuff in a CVS 
repo, in an FTP archive, or whatelse. It would require us to set up 
accounts for ASF-originating pull processes, too. If we could generate 
proper Expires: headers, we could use proxy_pass/_cache which doesn't 
require any security-sensitive setup on either side.
