a word of warning: the fallback files will be served untimed, i.e. as
fast as the receiving end can process them.
if it's a relay, then this will eat up your entire bandwidth. i've seen
loads of 30+ mbit/s with just two relays.
if all your clients are actual players, you will be fine, but even one
wget will really warm your uplink :)
