It's sort of "common knowledge" that the traffic out of Finland is always
a lot more than traffic to Finland, and indeed this is due to the ftp
archives they have there. So I would say that we do have an excellent
cache in Europe (Finland). How about NSF doing some caching, so people from
over there didn't have to pick up everything from Finland ? :-)
