This suffers from the same problem as a similar scanning script by Joey

There is no definitive CD mirror directory structure. :-(
Of course, the checking script can be made a bit more intelligent, but then
the point of a mirror is that it is identical to the original...
Part of the whole problem is also that two naming schemes exist for iso
images, the old "woody-i386-1.iso"-style one and the new
"debian-30r2-i386-binary-1.iso". debian-cd still creates old-style names by
default, doesn't it? :-/ At least cdimage.d.o now also offers the .iso
downloads with the new-style filenames.
BTW, can you (or someone else) look over
<http://www.debian.org/CD/mirroring/>? I'm not sure whether that page is
still up to date.
