Yeah, see my other reply from two minutes before yours. ;)  There has
been a thread on fedora-devel some time ago where Panu mentioned that
this feature would/might be dropped from RPM. Further, it's a bad
habit of mine to suggest wget/curl plus rpm because with that
combination, a copy of the downloaded package is saved in local dir
and can be reused in error conditions, whereas rpm works with a tmp
file. (not so important for tiny files, though)
