The Octopi has a tool to speed up the download, such as using curl or aria2?

For example, apt-fest use aria2, the octopi have something?

From a terminal I use powerpill to update and install applications.  I experience up to 10 times faster speed on updates with large number of apps being upgraded.

does xfer-ing to aria2c in pacman.conf work for GUI tools too ? download speeds get juiced up on cli for sure.

pacman need to build for it ? powerpill is like yaourt buildon libalmp or pacman... issue can be is your update with manjaro-system, it can ignore those, octopi is build on pacman so have to see if its possible to use aria2 im curius
