I agree. I created a somewhat related suggestion here:

Subject: Re: [Interest] Installer problems
Thanks for the suggestion.  We did finish the installs eventually, but we'll 
try that if the problem repeats in the future.
If time-outs are a common problem, maybe it would help to add this as an option 
in the installer interface? More accessible than a terminal command line buried 
in a wiki...
Thanks, Casey McD

Does it help if you choose a different mirror?
