I'm totally willing to retry.  A real mirror, even a local one, won't
have any problems because it has a setup.ini.

It would be pretty neat if genini could be simplified(*), so a mortal user
can just run it with a directory as parameter and it creates a setup.ini
file at the top-level of that dir without too much complaining about
missing sources etc.

(*) Or better: A user version of calm, packaged in the distro.
