Interesting idea! Where would you need to put the Javascript - onto the per-file mirror lists, or at the directory index?

I haven't used Google Analytics.

By the way, I recently noticed that most or probably all of the per-file mirror list could be generated from the metalink. It seems a bit weird to generate the mirror list right from within the Apache module, and it be smarter to use mod_xslt or something similar to transform a metalink in any kind of mirror list that one would want - which much better possibilities to style them or to integrate with other things.
