As an alternative solution, would it be feasible to completely drop the notion of registering a mirror under a different name? In this case, archive-mirror would take archive locations in arguments instead of archive names.

I see some problems: How would archive-mirror select the location? Also, the interface used by archive-mirror assumes that mirrors have names.

This might cope nicely with a new archive registration mechanism where one archive name maps to many archive locations.

I'm inclined to go along with the current scheme until the new registration mechanism is in place, because any work we do before then would probably be lost.
