The implementation is beautiful in its simplicity!

I don't like directing to Arch mirrors.  They've agreed to offer their
services to Arch, not us.  But, I do think that an automatic
redirector to Parabola mirrors would do a lot to alleviate the
concerns; it seems that a lot of the issues are because the load on
mirrors is so uneven.

Happy hacking,
