That contradicts the principile of "all the mirrors should be exactly 
equal". However, what you are suggesting is used by the PHP.net mirrors as 
well (a mirror that we also have). So I don't know... here it's more 
difficult. I think that what they're planning is (due to the announcement 
about SourceForge) is to place all the mirrors in a one big list at SF, 
which is why those file links are for... and I think that if it's place 
there, you can't do too much dynamic stuff around anyways... but those are 
only speculations ;)
