We can likely make the mirrorlist content available on https fairly
easily, and encourage other mirrors to also offer urls that run over https.

The other challenge with mirror.centos.org is also driven by it being a
network run on donated hardware, not sure if we want to put the https
certs on machines that other people can get hands-on easily.
