Sigh... It should not. First, the interval where the mirror is
incoherent is much smaller. Second, mirrors are not obliged to
distinguish the two phases so it's unfair to use it at the redirector.

Furthermore, the redirector sees a different moment than the client,
so the client may still have a mismatch. The role of the redirector is
only to filter mirrors that are not accessible or not sufficiently

There's no way to avoid the issue outside apt.
