Both use the same code to fetch the data. But fgfs discards data sets that
are older than /environment/params/metar-max-age-min (4 hours), and searches
more recent data from farther away stations. If all are old (because the
server is down and a proxy only spits out old data, or something), then you'll
maybe get lots of requests one after the other. Next time, check the age
of the weather data set that the "metar" program showed.
