Why this insult? :-((
Why to change hundreds spells if required functionality can be written only once and added into sorcery?

Yes, you are right. Just trying devel sorcery.
Problem is the stable sorcery doesn't have this "trying next MIRRORS" functionality yet.

Main Site can be very slow or we do not want to overload it.

What about if it isn't there just now?
There was some bug and sources version x.y.z was removed from Main Site and all MIRRORS and spell still contains x.y.z version.

In this example neither Main Site nor MIRRORS contain it.
Why should sorcery try hundreds MIRRORS?
Have a nice ...
Going to holiday, some places without net.
