I could sell you 4 wheels to match the ones on your car? ...or

...ultimately each domain will have a makefile with a target
to sync it, where it belongs, from the staging box. looks like
sitecopy will work fine, odd that the sitecopy doc indicates
mirror will work in a push configuration but I don't see any
mirror doc on how to configure it for that. sitecopy seems
simpler = better.
