Unrelated but thinking ahead, would it be possible to go ahead and get rid
of /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and pull from a main
http://www.archlinux.org/repository? Then have that repository instead
be a proxy to the actual
mirrors that round robin's them, possibly with some kind of IP geolocated
weighting? Then the package downloads can be easily tracked through this
main proxy.
