As a plugin writer, the HttpDownloader's automatically support metalink 4.0 support
The HttpDownloader's should be able to detect when metalink is being used as a discovery mechanism and should do the following:
1. Fetch the file from a url referred to in the metalink
2. Validate the data using the checksum specified in the metalink
This support would be added to existing HttpDownloader's in the Plugin API.
