Alright, since people seem hung up on this idea.  Which stage tarball?
Regular? uclibc? Hardened? What will you use to determine which version
to even get?  The CD itself really has nothing on it to identify the
version, so how will your script know where to go?

See, computers are good at dumb, repetitive tasks.  They tend to suck
hard on anything that requires even the slightest amount of grey matter.
I think it's best to let the user decide what he wants to download.
That really *is* the point of pointing people to the mirrors, directly.
