This solves problems 1 and 3 I think. As for the problem number 2...
Come on... How much space do these mirrors have? 300GB, 500, 2TB, more?
How fast are their connections? 50Mb, 70Mb?
Mirrors download this stuff only once, only when the distribution is officially
released and that's it.
There are alpha and beta releases, of course, but these shold remain as i586
optimized I think.

You guys keep on repeating that using i686 will give no speed gain... Why would
gcc devs implement this then? Why would they create CPU-specific optimization
options and tweaks at all? Couldn't they simply stick with i386. This would
make our lives easier... Because slower things are easier to handle you know.
