Does libcurl detect this and return an error? (CURLE_PARTIAL_FILE ?) Do you
then re-use the same easy handle for the following resume download?

With such a pity attitude from your company you just made me a lot less
interested in helping you out since this is clearly gonna be a one-way street
and I don't like those.

I think you should remind your bosses/management exactly how much you've paid
for libcurl, what it offers you and what you will gain by collaborating with
us instead. I mean sure you're free to use it and do almost whatever you want
without sending back anything, but I find it rude to ask us for assistance
when you play the secret game.
