:What do you actually think the mirrors should change ?
:I don't think we should rename old files.
    After USENIX (and after the download rush is over) I am going to 
    reorganize the iso-images directory.  I'll probably remove all the old
    'stable' ISOs or move them into an 'old-images' directory or something
    like that.
