I haven't found a yum-formatted mirrorlist for Scientific Linux so one 
will have to be generated anyway (the yum-conf RPM installed files show a 
commented out mirrorlist URI and those apparently don't work any more). 
But if there is a current yum mirrorlist somewhere it makes more sense to 
place it on a dual-stack server somewhere.

For freebsd, it would also be good to get freshports.org dual-stacked.
