How does the proxy work with the various mirrors?  Do you have client 
side settings to deal with that?

I wrote my own proxy in python that is specifically for yum and matches 
filenames from any url.  It's quite a hack and fails once in a while, 
but it saves me a huge amount of time and bandwidth with the large 
amount of Fedora computers I manage.  I suppose I could mirror the whole 
thing locally, but this way I only download the packages I need as I 
need them.
