Interesting idea. Never thought about using two mirrors in the config.

I fought with urpmi-proxy today for a while. No matter what I tried,
when downloading a synthesis via the proxy it always ended up too small
and with md5sum failures. Requesting the same file direct from the
mirrors worked every time. I noticed that the file never ended up in the
cache tree, just in the tmp dir. Time wasn't on my side, so I didn't
debug further... one to fight another day.

(this is with urpmi-proxy-0.3.2-1.mga2 on mga2 FWIW)
