Debian archive distribution via CloudFront CDN

Hello all,

For the last week and a bit (just before Wheezy launch) we've been testing out using Amazon's CloudFront CDN for distribution of CD Images and the main Debian archive (ie, in apt/sources.list). With the latest fix I have done, Ithink this is ready for a wider audience, so I'd like to seek additional testers for using it. If you're going to download the CD images, instead of hitting cdimage.debian.net, you can hit http://cloudfront.debian.org/cdimage/.

The longer term (and in limited test now) is using Raphael's http.debian.net and Yasuhiro-san's cdn.debian.net. Simply using:
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ stable main contrib
deb http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ stable main contrib

...should do the right thing. But I'd be interested in anyone who want to temporarily try out accessing CloudFront directly (to add some more load):
deb http://cloudfront.debian.net/debian/ stable main contrib

I'd like to thank feedback I've had from Dmitry, Raphael, and Yasuhiro-san and others on this.

Any other suggestions gladly welcomed.
