Having access to the mirror list at install time would be very nice
(automagically of course...) This would require anaconda to be able to
fail back mirrors, among other things. Right now, anaconda dies when a
package fails to download... there is no "oops, try again" and "hmm,
well look here instead" and we really need these features. I'm not sure
how much work it would be, but maybe I'll poke anaconda again, last time
it beat me.
