other aspects that havent been covered so far:
 - we need mirrors to distribute the load, and people willing to create rsync 
mirrors are much easier than git
 - along those lines, simplicity ... very easy to bring up a rsync mirror, and 
the people maintaining our mirrors are familiar with it
 - load on the system is higher with git than rsync (at least cpu wise), thus 
we need beefier machines to handle the same # of clients
