re whether mirror.pacific.net.au actually has the package, attempting a 
download from Sourceforge.net or a few other FOSS sources will generally give 
you a choice of mirrors.  mirror.pacific.net.au is the only mirror listed in 
Oz.  I've never attempted to trace whether the download came from the mirror 
or was transparently re-directed elsewhere.

My larger beef with mirror.pacific.net.au is that too many largish downloads 
from it are faulty - fail md5 , even without interruption of the link.  I've 
noticed this particularly with OpenOffice, yet repeating the download from 
planetmirror or openoffice.org invariably succeeds.
