Good joke, isn't it? And what about 3 or 4 segments? Lets think about for example 3:
first segment -- strart from the begining, forward. Second -- start from the end, backwards, and third in the middle, but which way?

Well, seriously, there is no support for downloading files backwards neither in Gnutella protocol nor in HTTP itself.
