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.

Appupdater uses XSLT to display a mirrorlist from the metalink (this
one doesn't list many mirrors tho):
