That was a real disappointment. It just quit working one day. I've been 
using the default since then.

There's a netselect-apt to help find the fastest debian mirror.

I also had a shell script to poll all available Debian mirrors to check 
for the fastest.

Wow. A rackspace Debian repository!? That's great. Rackspace seems to do 
a lot of worthwhile things.
