Since it's a conffile, is it unreasonable to expect people to CONFigure
it appropriately? Perhaps we could supply it with no site selected.
I always use mirror.aarnet.edu.au here in Australia, because from all
the locations I use the transfer speed is excellent. ftp1.us.debian.org
would not be at all enjoyable from here.
