I agree that a link on a "tar.gz" (etc) filename is a lot more intuitive if
it serves an actual tar.gz file... What about a script that randomly
redirects to an actual mirrored file?  I realize it may be necessary to
monitor all mirrors to automatically take them in and out of the loop when
they're up and down, but still....  I also wish there was a way to
automatically detect which one is actually closer and fastest network-wise
too... hmm..  This is probably getting to be too complex of a suggestion for
anyone to do with volunteer time and resources but still just an idea... ;o)
