Hi Lori,

There should be no issue with switching to an alternative mirror with
regards to the content.

However, in the current release you will also need to set the argument
= FALSE otherwise it'll end up at the uswest mirror regardless of the host
you specify.  This is not the case in the devel version, as I've disabled
the geo-redirect by default after talking to the people at Ensembl, and the
host argument is always obeyed.
