If I add it, does this actually increase the chances the patch will get in or 

Note that the current Substitute Mirrors Page system allows to select only one 
set of substitutes.
Mathieu was mentioning the ability to have a more complex Substitute Mirrors 
Page that allows to set up substitute servers in arbitrary order and so on, but 
I considered that it would be easier to implement a simple "just select one of 
these sets of substitutes" and hoped it would mean the patch gets in earlier 
rather than later.

In any case, it looks to me that bordeaux is already in 
`%default-substitute-mirrors`, which this patch uses, so it should get included 
anyway as a fallback in case the SJTU mirror is not available or something.
So maybe the patch is OK as-is?
