Description

As discussed on IRC. Proposal is to allow for sync= lines like:

sync = rsync://192.168.1.100/gentoo-portage rsync://rsync.us.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage

A syncer should be constructed and run with each url in order until successful. If none are successful, a SyncFailedError? should be thrown.

Replying to pioto:

A syncer should be constructed and run with each url in order until successful. If none are successful, a SyncFailedError? should be thrown.

Not possible to do with current syncers, as CRAN has to sync in a two-stage process.
