Probably something unpleasant for the first client. Easy fix is to
change .tmp to a random value; this should go in the TODO.

This means the server will keep downloading that file multiple times until the file download is complete, then new client requests that come in after that point use the cached version?

Perhaps we should look into how squid or varnish handle this scenario. There is probably a well-understood way of handling this that they figured out.
