curl -s ftp://mirror.cs.vt.edu/pub/cygwin/cygwin/x86/setup.ini | \
gawk '/^install: / { T = T + $3 ; N++ }; END { print N, T }'
4881 10124045929

32 bit:  10G in 4.9k files

curl -s ftp://mirror.cs.vt.edu/pub/cygwin/cygwin/x86_64/setup.ini | \
gawk '/^install: / { T = T + $3 ; N++ }; END { print N, T }'

64 bit:  7.2G in 3.6k files

I'd thought that a complete mirror includes source, but I agree that
one doesn't need that if the mirror is for private use.

Not being a developer and so not paying attention to source packages,
I hadn't realized that source was so much more bulky than binary.
