I think that is good; cache using ?noredirect, then send to repomirror
if you don't have it.

I don't know how complicated it would be, but it might be even better
to cache from repomirror; just as long as you follow the
redirects. So the cached reply would actually be from one of the other
mirrors; but have repomirror tell you which one.

Happy hacking,
