I've just looked at PHP.net's mirroring system and it seems very useful
for our purpose. See the description of how it works, taken from

"Here you can find information about the mirrors of PHP.net. This page
only lists the official mirrors, registered in our database. The mirrors
automatically detected to be outdated or disfunctional are not listed
for your convinience, so there may be a mirror (or some mirrors) with
problems in your country additionaly to those listed here. Therefore if
you cannot find mirror sites in your country here, or the mirror site
you used seems to be disappeared, check back later."

The mentioned mirrors.inc file is described at
