I just would not know. In practice for me using Mozilla 1.0, resume after a
break generally does not happen.
The beauty of jigdo is that I could download my iso file by file if I needed
to. From a more practical point of view it was quite easy to produce a set of
7 - 3.0r1 cds starting with my existing set of 3.0r0 cds and using my dialup
connection 4 hours at a time.
Of course it was more bothersome than just `wget blah-blah.iso` but without
being on a broadband connection I don't think that I would even attempt to
use wget for that.
