I think it would be more reasonable to look into what it would take to 
remove the (obvious) false positives and have the mirror script report 
new ones automatically during site build.
Though I think what simon was actually refering to are urls pointing to 
external sites which we could maybe check on events/training whatever 
submission and refuse to accept them.
The mirroring does not really care for external sites so we would only 
be able to spot mistakes that lead to urls that end up on wwwmaster 
(like it being interpreted as a relative link or such) not ones that are 
broken otherwise (domain misspelled, simply wrong,...).
