The size of the gentoo mirror is getting larger day by day.

cd /home/ftp/pub/gentoo
du -k --max-depth=1
16      ./grp
52516984        ./releases
32976828        ./distfiles
8624172 ./experimental
1953688 ./snapshots
96071692        .
cd releases
du -k --max-depth=1
477304  ./1.4_rc1
3773708 ./amd64
23005040        ./historical
13104   ./mips
6026720 ./ppc
5133452 ./sparc
12947212        ./x86
1140440 ./hppa
52516984        .

Do we really need to have 23GB of historical releases? Is it possible to
not mirror that and still be an oficial mirror?
