Because we know have bucketed S3 mirrors, is it possible to provide a
snapshot mirror service similar to

which provides apt-getable debian archive for any time/date in the past.

currently you need to manually fetch individual build-records from
launchpadlibrarian and launchpad does not have facility to publish apt
mirror snapshot.

But it would be great if we can fake something like snapshot.debian.org
using S3 mirrors.
