The only way
we could do this without checking the upstream source is if all
filenames on the mirrors changed every time their contents change. This
is possible and we considered this for repodata, but decided against it
because it would have broke earlier clients.
So repodata is condemned to be broken with proxies just because it was
designed broken ? Please reconsider. There are many places in the world
where you can only access trhough proxies (for good reasons) and yum can
not really be used right now.
Just autogenerate to sets of metadata and deprecate the proxy-unfriendly
version after a few years.
