FWIW, and if you don't mind using php, take a look at

http://cvs.php.net/cvs.php/php-master-web/scripts/mirror-test?login=2

(i suggest the make version, runs faster, needs latest cvs of wget)

and

http://cvs.php.net/cvs.php/php-master-web/scripts/mirror-summary?login=2

convert this code to look at a seperated-values file, if desired, or use the
database. Either way, you can easily adapt this to maintain a dynamic list
of mirrors, or at least provide status updates on mirrors.
