I would like to play around with this patch and functionality a bit, but I
have an initial request:

I'd like this patch to have as low impact as possible on the existing code so
I would really like to see perhaps a separate file added with the necessary
metalink support functions or similar, so that all devs and users who don't
care for metalink wouldn't have to see many traces of it.
