Given the mirror problems Tim devised a transparent mechanism
which provides packages from mirrors where they are available
and delivers them direct from the master server when they are
not.  It works reliably for Debian and Ubuntu packages, albeit
at slower speed when packages have to be downloaded from the
master server.

AFAIK this mechanism has not yet been tested with RPM-based
distros.  If they attempt to scan a directory instead of just
downloading specific files the redirector may need adjustment.
