Sounds like anaconda could do with cribbing yum's code for falling back
to alternate mirrors when it can't find a file on the first mirror it
I'm pretty sure anaconda already uses yum for this. IIRC, giving a
repo to anaconda via kickstart is like specifying baseurl to yum,
which also doesn't fall back. You need mirrorlist for that
