This would be difficult for several reasons. Users usually do not go to a 
redirector by browser, but automatically - apt, yum, etc. In addition on the 
master server are available sources that are not part of the mirror system.

With Tim we try to enhance original redirector to allow redirect users not 
only to the standard mirrors, but also to a new redirector - in order to take 
advantage of packages available in the local cache on a new redirector, 
instead of downloading them from the master server. This should enable to 
take advantage of new redirector, without causing complications to users.
