mjl and I have discussed this yesterday, and we might be able to do
the trick by having something like
MASTER_SITE_SORT= .at .at.netbsd.org .de
that will be converted into a
MASTER_SORT_REGEX= //.*\.at/ //.*\.at\.netbsd\.org/ //.*\.de/
and then used in the script as proposed. This allows us to keep the
MASTER_SITE_SORT syntax simple for most uses, while still allowing for
more complex selections (e.g. http: vs. ftp:) through MASTER_SORT_REGEX.
