It would be great if there was a way to tell aria to start downloading a file with the specified number of connections at the beginning, so one could, for example, start watching a movie while it is still being downloaded.

Example:
Currently, if you specify to use four connections (-s 4), you have to wait for the whole file to finish downloading to watch more than the first quarter.

If you could say "I want four connections, but split it up to 32 segments", aria would start with the first four segments, then download the next four and so on. The download would be almost sequential while still maintainig max speed.
