Well, I added it for entirely selfish reasons, so I'm not sure I deserve
getting thanks :)

In the meantime I tried what happens if the mirror is broken.  For
instance, if a file which is supposed to be installed, is missing.
Fortunately this situation is catched by the checksum check performed
right before uninstalling the old packages.  Setup opens a dialog asking
if this package should be skipped.  That's reassuring.
