While working on my ncurses problems I noticed the following problems
1. setup.exe would not let you load the source of a package if you
have already loaded the current version of the package (without
the source). Even uninstalling the package would not help.
I solved it by doing the ftp myself, after looking at setup.log,
but it is not straight forward (I did not install the source, I
just used Emacs to browse the tar.gz without unzipping it).
2. Chris Faylor always requests us to download from a mirror site and
I obey. I think setup.exe can benefit if the mirrors list would be
enhanced with 2 additions: The first will be the "update" status of
the mirror site (it seems some mirrors are "more" up to date than
others). The second will be the net speed of the mirror site (the
mirror I used was dripping a mere 2-3 KB/S).
