At first glance, I was going to say that perhaps you'd missed some of the 
discussion in the thread, and had missed the point. On second take, I see 
possibilities. I do know how to configure mirrors using the GUI interface - I 
haven't bothered because it is tedious and consumes much time, and I hadn't 
found a need to. But, I can see where it would be much easier, perhaps, to 
generate that little text file, then add all the mirrors at once using 
the "add"  command - I'll have to try that - thanks for your input.
