Hmm, in the live-cd environment this is possible with pacman -S
pacman-mirrorlist (ok, you get  *.pacnew and must activate/deactivate
mirrors by hand....).
But maybe we make a wrapper script for do that:
wget the actual mirrorlist file, make via sed all mirrors active.
IMHO we could not do that automatically cause we don't know when network
is set up.

This is a nice thought maybe for the installer. aif could possible do
that when the user select the net-install source (ftp/http)....
