[Was sent to kde-core-devel by mistake, hence lack of context].

But this patch needs approval anyway; it contains a bugfix (support for resume offsets >2GB)
and a feature ("resume_until" metadata, for an HTTP download from an offset to another offset,
"Range: bytes=123-456" in HTTP terms).

The patch looks good and safe enough to me, I'm in favour of it being committed.
It's a no-op for any existing KDE code, but it will allow apps to request partial
downloads - I guess kget might be interested in that.
