Reverting back to rsync when you have an almost finished image (lets call
it binary-i386-1.iso) you find a mirror with rsync acccess (lets call that
one ftp.se.debian.org). Then you use rsync to make the amlost finished
image an exact copy of the one on the server, which due to the rsync
protocol doesn't involve huge downloads.

Something like:
rsync ftp.se.debian.org::debian-iso/2.2_rev4/i386/binary-i386-1.iso binary-i386-1.iso
