Speaking of which ....
Is there any way to get fetch to try mirror sites in other than
the order listed?
Case: when building programs hosted on Sourceforge, some of the
SF mirrors are _creaking_ slow. By manually fetching with a
different site I can reduce download time from (in extreme cases)
hours to minutes.
I /could/ edit the list of Sourceforge mirrors, but I'd prefer
not to meddle unless there's no better solution.
