Another pkgsrc thoughts

Apart from my thread in bugs, I have some thoughts/questions on pkgsrc:
1. Is it possible to go FreeBSD way in mirrors naming? I mean
something like "pkgbox.dragonfly.org", "pkgbox.ee.dragonfly.org",
"pkgbox.ua.dragonflybsd.org", etc. Resembling "cvsup.*.freebsd.org"
2. Is it possible to expand mirror status page to cover status of
pkgsrc mirrors? I had to go through many of sites to find estpak.ee
suitable for me, after I realized ua mirror does not have all packages
3. I was unable to find the way to deny ipv6 for package retrieving.
So ftp spitting messages like "no route to host" for every package. I
found this somewhat irritating.
PS. Anyway, just great system! I like it more than FreeBSD's ports. :)
