Actually, it's really easy. Debian does exactly this (though mirrored) with
their non-US repository and servers. There is no reason why we couldn't use
non-US resources for some or all of our infrastructure. This one is easy to
solve, because it's just meat and metal. :-) It's the moral issues that are
tougher. :-)
