This would be useful for the *BSD porting systems to use.

A method to download source tar files (without viewing/parsing an html page)
from the closest mirror would allow *BSD ports to more effectively use the
mirrors. If the 'closer' mirror fails they could fall back to a static list
of the mirrors and put apache.org last.
