No, sadly. The pack sent for a clone is generated dynamically, so
there's no easy way to support the equivalent of an HTTP Range request
to resume. Someone might implement an appropriate protocol extension
to tackle this (e.g., peff's seed-with-clone.bundle hack) some day,
but for now it doesn't exist.
What you *can* do today is create a bundle from the large repo
somewhere with a reliable connection and then grab that using a
resumable transport such as HTTP. A kind person made a service to do
Hope that helps,
