Of course that I can. The user is not complaining about a bug on links2,
but about me having uploaded a broken dsc file. So I think that I'm free
to use any tool that I wish to demonstrate that I didn't uploaded a
broken file.

Also, you are assuming that I didn't tried to reproduce that with
links2, which is not true. Before posting, I tried to download the file
with links2 (testing) and it worked just fine. I just used the wget
example because is easier to write here (or on the shell) the command to
directly download a file.
