Well, yes..
Actually, my mirroring script does auto-deletion but "slowly": never more than a few hundred files at a time (apart from the 'Recommended/' subdirectories: There, it is  important to delete, i.e., important to not have more than one  version of a recommended package .. for our tools/rsync-recommended  script )

Almost: CRAN-admin_at_r-project.org
