So if we had this master_sites keyword in port foo:

master_sites \
     sourceforge \                 (ping resp t9) \    (ping resp t4) \  (ping resp t7)
     freebsd                           (ping resp t1)

The fetch order of the master_sites would be:

1) freebsd
4) sourceforge
5) implicit MP fallback mirrors

And the individual url's listed in mirrors_sites.tcl for mirrors are tried
in order.  Is that understanding correct?
