No this isn't insufficient, what is insufficient is that I currently
can't run a local freebsd-update server. I'm quite limited by bandwidth
here, you see. What would make more sense in my situation would be to
have a local mirror of the 'official' freebsd-update server so that
all of my machines can sync to that rather than all of them downloading
over the WAN.
