Does that mean that a site in country X can be nominated as the
"primary" site and then hyperreal's /dist directory would mirror
the sources/binaries from X?

If that's all there is to it, then it's a pain but trivial.

I guess the trick is to not export the sensitive code out of the US
to X. So future builds would need to be made outside of the USA?.

Warnings are easy to write.

If you already have portable patches, then this sounds easy.

a pain, but not difficult.

Okay lets make plans post-1.0

If we can distribute Apache with SSL, while staying within the stupid
rules, it's one more nail in the coffin of the stupid rule makers. Let's
go for it.
