Sounds fine since spaces in the URL can/have to be escaped. I'm not so
sure about readability though.

How about adding support for this?

Server = http://foo/

URL = http://bar/
SomeOption = value
Key2 = value2

Server = http://blub/

Obviously the old "Server = foo" syntax is a  shortcut for the full
section syntax.

This is somewhat weird though so it might make more sense to separate
the old style from the section-based ini style and let the user choose
how the mirror list is parsed in pacman.conf.

Just some ideas, not really fleshed out. Feel free to take them apart.
