Speed doesn't usually pick up till you're a few minutes into a d/l so for clients I'm not sure how usefull this would be seeing as most updates are tiny with exception to the obvious monsters. Maybe limits could be written in. If a file size is less then two megs its a direct download and for larger files this new 'yumtode' app could kick in.
