Me thinks that doesn't work.

fastest mirror give me the lowest values for .tw sites. Which, I think 
mean the fastest. They are in fact, the slowest. Here are some real numbers:

base 856 kb 27:38
updates 91 kb 1:20

kernel-devel died after 52:01

At this point several mirrors were tried finally a fast one was found 
and things went quickly and smoothly.

Almost one hour and only 1.7 of 4.8 m was downloaded

This is typical for me getting data from .tw sites.
