 Very close to 100% of the time that I move to a different mirror it's
because I got a 404 from a previous one ... so this is exactly the wrong
thing to do in that case.
 A significant portion of the rest of the time it's because I got a
checksum failure, and again this is the wrong thing to do.

 Which cases is this going to be good for?
