I don't see why not, though I'd be more inclined to add pin support
first.  I had a crazy idea of doing directed graphs for country support,
so you could just pick your country and the software would find the
"closest" mirror.

As a side issue, the repository description files will contain mirror
information in a standard, easy-to-parse format.  Perhaps apt-spy could
use those if available, and could then perform its function on any
repository instead of just Debian's.
