Question: should we place ftp.archlinux.org mirror on top of the
generated mirrorlist?

Currently the fetched mirrorlist is sorted by country, so an Australian
mirror is on top. This is normally not a real problem if someone uses
pacman in live-CD mode (aif installer ask the user which mirror should
be used during web-install from this list).

So what you opinions? Pushing archlinux.org mirror although we would
avoid using this host?
Or live with: first-in = first-use, a experienced arch user IMHO think
to check the mirrorlist and push his preferenced mirror...
