In another email you told having misunderstood my position, now it's my turn
to try to misunderstand you ;)
What is your position about hostnames?
  Template: mirror/http/mirror
  Type: select
  Choices: ${mirrors}
  Default: http.us.debian.org

I definitely want to add
  Default-fr: ftp.fr.debian.org
but am I the only translator interested in providing better defaults when
they are locale-dependent?
