I've added that to my working tree now.  Append '&netblock=0' to
disable the netblock code.

Uhh, hmm.  Could we, yes.  If a host serves both http and ftp right
now, mm only returns the http URLs (faster setup time).  To change
that would be somewhat difficult, we'd have to know a lot more data at
client lookup time than I currently keep track of in the mirrorlist_cache.

They only need to have sub-trees (e.g. everything below
pub/fedora/linux) the same.  They can put that sub-tree anywhere they
want as long as they tell mm about it.  If they put things
willy-nilly, then yes, mm won't find it.

Thanks,
