Well, if you stopped the mirror in a standard way (waiting 
for pending downloads to finish), the "Contnue an 
interrupted download" option should restart quickly, NOT 
downloading already downloaded material (DO NOT use 
the "Update" option, however, which would be MUCH longer)

But there is no way to "Freeze" the current state, as all 
context (links, stack..) are quite hard to save..
