8 i've used RESTRICT=mirror in the past when the files were really large (like
9 games or toolchain source tarballs) and upstream already had a good mirroring
10 system. in both cases, there was no binary redistribution restrictions.
12 so my answer would be no: we have two independent knobs and let's keep them
13 that way.
