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.

No-o -- I was just talking about 2 segments. Fixed. Not three or more. I don't know how much more you'll gain from having more than 2 anyway.
So what about if you have that? 2 segments? It sounds pretty goot to me, this "downloading backwards" thing. I mean, I am not convied it makes sense, but it's at least an idea.

Please don't trash the whole idea from the very beginning, but let's talk a bit about it.
