FWIW, we've increased the low speed limit in urlgrabber from 
1 to 1000 B/sec.  This should fix the most pathological cases.
When speed falls below this limit for 30s, download is aborted 
as if it timed out, and next mirror is used.  Each timeout also
halves the mirror's estimated speed so it will very likely be
avoided next time.

The timeout value (30s by default) could be adjusted in yum.conf.
Low speed limit is hardcoded, but there's a simple patch to add
it to yum.conf.. could be merged if necessary.
