As far as your script goes, we'll be considered "bad" because our ftp
server is very often full.  I let the Redhat/Mandrake users fight for
those ftp slots but provide Debian users with access to the mirror via
http.  However, since we'll be considered "bad" might not be listed on
the mirrors page.
