cvsup.dragonflybsd.org is a nickname for crater.dragonflybsd.org
crater.dragonflybsd.org has address
crater.dragonflybsd.org mail is handled (pri=10) by crater.dragonflybsd.org

Given your desired policy above, I'd say moving that CNAME to a higher
bandwidth mirror would take some of the load off of your link. The CNAME
is, of course, what I use in my automatic cron job...and the principle
of least surprise suggests that I shouldn't be overloading anyone's link
using a provided example.

Perhaps I was mistaken to presume that the example would point to
something that would tolerate cron jobs? :)

Nasrudin was driving a friend in his car at a spanking
pace. Suddenly, glimpsing a signpost, the friend called out
"Mulla, we're going in the wrong direction!"
"Why don't you ever think of something good?" came the
reply. "Just look, for instance, at the speed we are going at."
