we also discussed this fan mirror (to call it something) would reply
with a redirect to an arch mirror if the package was on arch repos and
wasn't blacklisted, so this would make parabola repos only host [libre],
[pcr] and [sources].

the gotcha can be solved by making a HEAD request to the mirror for the
package before replying with an http redirect.
