Yes, using pep381client. Notice that a.mirrors is dinsdale itself,
so there is only a single mirror.

Not yet; that's not implemented yet. More specifically, I get the 
statistics, but the log files are not yet processed.

As I said: setuptools and distribute should start supporting PEP 381,
as an experimental feature.

I think MAL believes that this would not be necessary if the Amazon 
service would be used; I remain skeptical. I'd rather have the clients 
try explicitly (and indicate to the user that they are using a mirror).
