Mirrors with restrictions are marked as tier 2 ... with our new update
system, that will use them for users within that country only for
updates.  Tier 2 also indicates not fast bandwidth (at least not to
everyone ... or at all times).  So, far the tier 2 sites ... if you are
in that country, you might get great speed, other people maybe not.
