is there any reason why the download code is in pacman and not in the

imho placing the old download code in pacman, and not in the library is a
disadvantage, and not an advantage

or we could allow to use NULL as the download cb function pointer, and
then use the our own download code

opinions? if i would implement this then theoratically you wouldn't have
