Hi,

I put together a yum plugin that hooks into the predownload slot and
sorts the repo's mirrorlist by connection speed.  The initial concept
of the mirror selection algorithm was taken from the fastest_cvsup[1]
project, which seems to be very fast (after multi-threading it) and
pretty reliable.

Enjoy!
