Nice implementation. Patch works fine here!

As you use port mirror for this task now, can we revert the addition of 
port distfiles? Or should this still be considered useful?

Another topic: Some time ago we had the idea to generate usage 
statistics by counting distfiles downloads from the macports distfiles 
mirror. If we still want to do this, we would have to add the macports 
distfiles mirror at the top of the list, so everybody tries that first. 
But this would make this shiny new ping sort feature useless. What is 
more important for use? Probably faster downloads or pseudo usage
