A simple solution would be to link to a simple php script (or perl or
whatever) on WineHQ server that randomly selects a mirror (we can then
use all mirrors on sourceforge,
http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/MozillaControl16.exe, one hosted on
winehq, etc.) This would address the capacity problem.
If you want I can make such a script (but that's trivial).
