Well if this is the only issue, then why not just maintain a central
*list* of urls? The user downloads the list, as a textfile, feeds it
into a wget or curl script, and it downloads all the tracks from lots
of different places.

This avoids the requirement for a single large server with large
mirrors (which *will* be a genuine obstacle, in the early days of
getting this project off the ground).
