It's not hard. I have a friend who deals with this kind of stuff all the time. I'll speak with him about it. I just want to make sure that the lua site never goes down :).

Many thanks for your move. However, we are not sure whether it is a good idea to distribute the current load. It is not that big for a reasonable
host, and the site hit count is an important measure for us. A mirror
would share those hits and complicate stats gathering.

On the other hand, a mirror would be more than welcome as a backup.
Whenever the official site is down, the DNS could direct the trafic
to the mirror. Is it easy to implement that?
