I would support only having article and portal space indexed, not even 
having talk pages indexed.  Is there a way of doing it so it would be 
picked up across mirrors too?  I have no idea of how it's done beyond 
the no robots or something command in the headers.  I have a feeling 
this is a perennial though.
