How about having a precedence list for download sites? Works well for  
fetching ports distfiles at least. If someone doesn't want to fetch  
from nonlocal mirrors they could just explicitly note the download  
mirrors. And if someone wanted to place priority on the local mirror  
they could accumulate the value appropriately with sh syntax.

Just a thought. I like the functionality, but this seems like a better  
overall solution.
