There was many thread and patches regarding this, so I am starting another!
So far there are two (maybe three) things people want options for to do
with the downloader. I see most of these options being set in
pacman.conf and rarely specified on the command line. Argue with me if
I am wrong here...
Based on that assumption, here are my preferred option names (for both
pacman.conf and the command line):
1) Disable low speed timeout
I see no need to separate out speed and time timeouts.
2) Set maximum download speed
I would also accept replacing speed with limit.
3) (in a glorious future) Set maximum concurrent downloads
Any argument about these option names will need to be very clearly
justified. I don't own a bike so have no need for a bikeshed.
