It could have been done, were it not for the dreaded slices[1].

I did this:

my %mirrors = (
    "<ATc>" => "at",
    "<AUc>" => "au",
    "<BGc>" => "bg",
    "<CNc>" => "cn",
    "<DKc>" => "dk",
    "<FRc>" => "fr",
    "<DEc>" => "de",
    "<JPc>" => "jp",
    "<KRc>" => "kr",
    "<ITc>" => "it",
    "<NLc>" => "nl",
    "<PLc>" => "pl",
    "<RUc>" => "ru",
    "<ZAc>" => "za",
    "<ESc>" => "es",
    "<TRc>" => "tr",
    "<UKc>" => "uk",
foreach $m (sort keys %mirrors) {
  print STDERR "$m\n";
  print "  <option value=\"http://www.$mirrors{$m}.debian.org\";>$m</option>\n";

However, it doesn't work since the slices within each of the <XXc> tags
don't get expanded until pass 9, and eperl is pass 3. :(

Something like this works for the hash in the languages template because it
uses values for the paths from another hash, instead of sliced tags. It
would be a royal pain to get this done for the country names, I think.

Maybe Denis can show us an elegant way to do this?
