well, the issue currently is/was:

I'm currently trying to rebuild all packages available - so far ~60%
success - these reside in "staging" -> factor of 1.6

2nd: My script was somewhat buggy, not removing older versions from
"staging" (should be fixed, now) -> even bigger factor

Also note, that "any" packages are not duplicated on a mulit-arch
mirror, so your estimate of 50% is too low.
