Yes, I've thought of doing some type of mirror as well. As an ISP another
idea would be to do a zone transfer of their domain and answer
authoritativly for it but modify all the www pointers to your mirror instead
"forcing" your users to hit the mirror instead of the main page.

Would be useful for heavily hit servers which are slugish from your part of
the net.

Being bombarded with a recursive webget might piss off a few admins though
on large sites =]. Better make sure thats running at 4am =].
