Interesting idea. The database doesn't know anything about file
"types" right now, pretty intentionally.  Doesn't mean we can't add
such, but that will add complexity and possibly additional maintenance
burdens.

How would you expect to handle sets of media (e.g. downloading 3 CD
ISOs that are in the releases/7/Fedora/i386/iso/ directory as opposed
to a single DVD ISO)?
