 Sure, and don't get me wrong, I don't object to JavaScript solutions.
But both that approach and sever-side parts are a a trouble for the main
Debian website, both accessibility/usability wise and mirroring wise.
The requirements for our website mirrors are pretty low and even though
we host www.debian.org now through geodns I don't want to increase the
barrier, not all mirrors are under our control.

 Thanks, and good luck with your efforts on the other hand!
