Even with all it's weeknesses InstantMirror could be used with
MirrorManager to do transparent caching/mirroring...
Take a system with enough HDD space, install instantmirror,
go to mirror manager admin page, create a new site, add your ips, and
the mirror.
The get the mirror reporting script and make it run with cron :)
It isn't perfect but it's much berrer than nothing
