Yeah this is what I was saying. It... "works" but it's a little slow.
I guess, in actuality, it's not a huge problem, and may actually be
advantageous for a download of 20 packages where only 1 is missing on
the super-fast mirror.

So Nagy is probably right that the existing behavior (with the
"continue") is better if we assume a sorted mirror list
