I run my mirror with the perl mirror package too, works quite well... but
my machine has ram to spare so I've never noticed it chewing it.  I run a
bunch of mirrors with it. 

At any rate setting up a cvsup server has been on The List for a while. 
If we ran a cvsup server then mirrors could just "cvs update" their local
copy (with the advantage that you could also mirror the code repository). 
Anyone tried that before?
