it depends.  i don't mind if it was something like

o select a mirror (from a list.. e.g radio buttons)
o then all the download pages are wgettable as they all point at the
  mirror selected

well, randomly to me is not good.  from a network centric view i would
rather (being in australia) be able to select an australian download
site, either for each download, or at the start (and with something
that remembers?) and then all my downloads after that are from AU.

from my experience of mirroring, people downloading like being able
to select their country, or at the least a site/mirror they are
happy with and know that all their downloads come from that location..
