That's true ... I was just thinking that if the index files were
cross-platform, one didn't need to build the index on the mirrors
- just install the search scripts on the mirror, and have it use
the index that is being mirrored from the master. It's a bit
simpler to set up, and so might make for better mirroring. But
if, as you say, there may be questions of the index files not
being cross-platform, this may not be worth the trouble.
