It's a possibility, but I had envisioned something simpler. IMHO this
falls under the "user knows better than to use an automated system"
scenario, for people that would probably be picking their mirrors
manually anyway. I don't know of any ISP that uses off-shore DNS
resolvers, so people that do this are probably already changing it manually.
But of course, I'm open for discussion if people think this is a worthy
workaround (and you're also free get the script yourself and provide
some patches ;) ).

Cheers and thanks for the feedback!
