I had a look along with upgrading Apache2::Geo::Mirror and it doesn't
seem suited for this. But that sounds technically doable.

If we manage to implemnt this, we could also display a header like
"You'll be redirected blah blah 24h delay blah".

Currently we're using mirmon
( to check the health of the
mirror, based on a timestamp file (00_TIME.txt).

When the mirror is too old (> 28h), it's moved out of the pool.

This doesn't solve the 24h delay, but this sound similar to your
suggestion :)
