Bo has limited bandwidth, and his service provider doesn't offer any rsync
interface.  Because there's no rsync, it's difficult to maintain mirror
copies of Bo's site.

It'd be even better to do a HTTP redirect.  If the archive has to be
removed from FUNET (someone else who has account on is
interested in preserving it there), I'll ask politely to add RedirectMatch
rules that point to Bo's site.
