Yes.

Sun had one dubbed "Sun Download Manager", written in cross platform
Java, and which worked wonders. Sadly it was killed after the Sun-ORCL
merger, because it didnĀ“t interface well with the latterĀ“ SSL download
system in place.

Hmmm... maybe Apache can use its reach to ask ORCL for the Sun DL
Manager code? It would make a great FOSS project: Apache Download
Manager. ;)
