Bug#431441: apt-spy: Check a random subset of servers with -e n option

Package: apt-spy
Version: 3.1-16
Severity: wishlist

There are many mirrors in North America, so I said:

    apt-spy -d stable -a North-America -e 10

to check just 10.  Unfortunately it checks just the first 10, so mirrors
near the beginning of the mirror list will get more traffic directed to them
from apt-spy than mirrors later in the list.  It would be better if apt-spy
balanced the traffic to the mirrors by selecting a random 10 mirrors instead
of the first 10.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: 4.0

apt-spy recommends no packages.
