Allow multiple mirrors per file

Description

I recently downloaded RedHat Linux from one of the
mirrors. Due to the number of current users it had to
reconnect hundreds of times wasting a lot of time.
Since I was already halfway through the download I
didn't want to try to find the files on another mirror
which could potentially have the same problem.

What would be really nice is to assign several mirrors to
certain files. Most mirrors will have an identical file
structure once you get down to a specific level. It
would be nice to have FileZilla check each mirror in
sequence until it found one available and then download
the file from there rather than trying the same mirror
over and over again every few seconds.

For example I could highlight a large amount of files in
the Queue and assing the following mirrors for RedHat
Linux:
mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/redhat/redhat
mirror.ats.ucla.edu/pub/linux/redhat/ftp.redhat.com/linux/
andromeda.acs.uci.edu/mirrors/redhat/
...

Thanks,
Matt Penner

Maybe BitTorrent is what you are looking at? At least this protocol is designed for "mirrors".
