This testing turned out to be useful.
This new filename feature did not work with the old DLAGENTS array
without %o / %u.
It turned out it was pretty straightforward to have this feature
working both with the old and new DLAGENTS, mostly by reworking the
download_file function.

I did quite a few testing with all combinations for that new patch,
and it went well.
I will submit an updated version on aur-general just in case.
