Metalink is, simplified, a xml list of download locations. It also checks the md5sum during download.
As good metalink clients, like aria2, use segmented downloading, making this one link would give speed and stability to capable clients.
I propose adding a metalink as the first link on DSL download page.
I know aria2 can use segmented downloading in itself, but finding say 10 mirrors of DSL and copying all the addresses to the command line takes time.
A web-based creator is here: http://www.metalinker.org/generator/
Using it I created a metalink of DSL 3.4 isolinux iso. It assumes that this metalink is located as "www.damnsmalllinux.org/dsl.metalink" for updating status eg... If you decide to use it, it's here.
(to use it, copy it to the DSL server and add a link to it)
