That explains, can we somehow fix or work around that?
Basically someone would need to do some work on mirrorbrain itself, the
code.  It would be very nice to support https as well as ipv6.

Or you could switch from mirrorbrain to mirrorbits, which does support
both, and to which most of the rest of the world switched by now, due to
the complete lack of any mirrorbrain development (or even merging of
existing patches) for years now.

That's my impression as well, it's likely less effort than trying to
beat mirrorbrain into shape.

From what I see there is no metalink support in mirrorbits. Might be the
reason why it was not adopted yet.
