I find it a minor inconvenience to have to select a CRAN mirror before I 
can look at the on-line documentation for contributed packages.  Might 
it make sense to store the last CRAN mirror used in a cookie and offer 
that a the default when you want to transfer people to a mirror?  (I 
don't think it should be totally hidden from the user, because 
occasionally one CRAN mirror will have problems that don't affect 
others.)  Again, I wouldn't have anyone change this "just for me", but 
if you thought it might make the web site more friendly for others (AND 
it could be fairly easily done), then you might consider it.
