Never mind - I think I figured it out.

It seems like byte ranges + reget = 'simple' == not so happy.
So I worked around that. If you'd like to test it give it a whirl.

I found one, very minor, bug in urlgrabber - grabber.py - line 904:

except socket.error:

it needs to read:
except socket.error, e:

I've checked in the change to the one inside yum - figured you'd want it
for cvs as well.

I think regets is working reasonably as expected, i've tested the error
conditions and I think it's right.

Michael, Ryan: If either of you could get the chance and check the code
in yum/repos.py Repository.get() and Repository.setupGrab() and see if
the retries functionality is working like you'd think it should, I'd
appreciate it. For some reason I'm thinking it's not b/c of how quickly
it fails over to the next mirror.
