This particular bit could be solved by replacing the current mirrorlist

with REST-like URLs (using redirects in Apache, whatever)

In the first case the proxy knows the mirrorlist is dynamic and won't
cache it (causing different clients in the network to use different

In the second case it will cache it as any other static page, directing
every client behind the proxy to the same source.

Bonus points for figuring what is the right expire value to send with
those pages to control proxy source balancing.
