    One problem here is that the Apache2::Geo::Mirror module only loads
    the mirror list upon initialization of Apache, 

Wow.  That would explain a lot of things where users keep reporting
outdated mirrors no longer in the list, etc.

    I think the most sane thing to do here is subclass Apache2::Geo::Mirror
    and add a simple feature that checks the last modified time of the 
    /usr/local/share/GeoIP/gnu-ftpmirror.txt file; if it changes, reload the 

We'd want to do the same thing for the existing non-gnu redirector too,
of course.  Ideally even pass that fix back upstream, if there still is
an upstream ...
