Hi Allan, Hi Anatol,

I was looking to this new multiplexed implementation and I found some 
1) This implementation can lead to download databases from different 
servers, I think it can't be a problem if they are not synced
2) Differents download payloads are created for databases and its 
signature files, this can this time lead to download the database and 
its signature from differents server, I'm sure it's not wanted.
3) Because signature files have their own download payloads, if the 
signature is missing on a the first server (e.g. database signature is 
optional), all next servers will be tried and all will give the same 

I really wanted to suggest a patch but I didn't find a easy way 
(understand a small patch) to fix it and I would like your opinion on 
point 1) first.
