understood - we do have that information


it looks like north america, europ, and asia are covered
sufficiently - the out-lying areas being south america, africa,
middle-east, and australia - but keep in mind that the
arch-bound redirector does not have any logic in it now - it
simply selects one of a fixed set of ten indiscriminately; and
im not sure if geographic diversity was ever considered as a
criteria for being place into that set - those more distant
locations may not be served optimally with the current redirector
