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.
