Err... I think this description alone should do it, no need to waste
your time writing the n-th description of how to set up a transparent
proxy, setting up BIND and so on... You could write an ebuild
"hacked-up-rsync-mirror" which does this all, so that all of us
can do some testing :-)
But i doubt that you really manage to hack up my BIND, place a
transparent proxy in my connection to the net or convince me to use your
fake mirror. But go on, play... Don't complain here if you're the one
being laughed at on that mentioned mailing list...
