Why not? There's a non-free Windows program called FlashGet which
does this and it's very effective. Given a URL, it will set up multiple
connections to the same place to download part of the file each. If
it can, it'll locate mirrors of the file and download parts from
those servers (after determining the fastest with ping) instead.
Very effective, if anti-social.
