I think you'll have a much better chance of getting this integrated
into aria2 than wget, curl or something similar.

I thought there was a feature request or discussion about this for
aria2 before, but can't find it now...

I know some metalinks contain rsync:// URLs, along with
ftp/http(s)/bittorrent ones so that could be interesting.
