And a simple script based around ping/traceroute tells me nothing
about how the server at the far end can actually deliver.

Yes, run a wget on an ISO to get a useful impression.

So we are back to sheer combinatorial volume of doing that for every site that
mirrorbrain _might_ direct me to for each repository I use.
