Right, but unfortunately most of our mirrors arent in sync yet - and if 
they flip the bit that would cause problems.

Our website also should only show current mirrors - but current isd in the 
last 24 hours - so I would expect a lot of slower syncing mirrors to drop 
off  24 hours after release.

Our mirrorlist and isoredirect systems will only give mirrors that are up 
to date.
