I am /astounded/ that it hadn't stopped working with all the changes to
yum since 2007.  I hadn't been using it myself, as both the mirrors and 
yum have seen improvement over time, but I did occasionally miss it.  
I've installed it again and will look for any problems it might have 
with current yum.

Anyone choosing to use stablemirror will probably want to disable 
fastestmirror.
