    Actually, when I asked "is this even desirable", I meant does even want web mirrors floating around?  I realize there
    must be a distinction between web mirrors and ftp mirrors within
    the same region.

    with DNS for and above in one place.  A reference to is merely a preference for xx, but failing its
    presence, using makes the most sense to me.
