Thanks, it's a very useful tool, but version 1.02 already does everything I
need. (But I did have to remove lc, which was lowercasing the word STABLE in
squid versions, and so causing clean_setup.pl to complain that it could not find
squid...stable..., and that squid...STABLE... was not in setup.ini)
I'm really gently suggesting that we shouldn't need to have a script to merge
the mirror directories, because (as I understand it) they serve no purpose.
