Which will lead to many small hits to the super mirror. Hmm, we should think
about that. Fact is: People than have to wait for the original EXT server
plus a connect time to the super mirror.
Could all be fast, but could lead to problems on slower lines, DNS not
answering fast enough, etc. pp.
I personally think an MD5 in the EXT is fine. To check if the server admins
are "bad" I would stick to an idea, where we have a few server admins.

Advantage: If we stick to regular FTP mechanisms, we could use the already
existing infrastructure of some FTP Servers.
