I think the sync target would need some work to support choosing from a
list of possible sources. Multiple sources can be listed, but currently
they are *all* used. So it gets a little complicated since you'd need
both lists of sources from which you want to choose one, and lists of
sources where you want to pull from all of them.

I'm in favour of the wiki page and a comment in sources.conf.
