My plan is to keep this because I just remove the sorting by score. The
score will still be used to filter mirrors which have a very high one
(currently >100). Such mirrors are either very, very slow or out of
date. Using the score (mirror status) just to filter the list should
return a list of useable mirrors.

Without this option, archweb would return a list that contains all
mirrors, even if they are out of date.
