The mirrorlists returned to yum do use geoip plus other heuristics
(e.g. if there are fewer than 3 mirrors in a country, return the
global list).  So we're good there.

The web pages under /publiclist don't though.  They do list the
country a mirror is in, but they list all the mirrors, currently
194. :-) Maybe it's too long a page for people to crawl through to
find their country; I'm open to page design suggestions.  But I don't
want to keep per-country static pages for these; I do per-country
per-repo static text files for the yum mirrorlists as a backup, and
there are nearly 4300 such files.  I don't want to duplicate all that
again for the /publiclist pages...
