D-I developers (especially joeyh), wouldn't this actually be something like "apt should offer an option to retry downloading" ? AFAIK, the D-I composent that retrieves things from the net (net-retriever) *does* offer an option to retry downloads....but when the download of packages in the "Install software" step is involved, it indeed depends on downloads performed by APT.... Correct?
