I have a new downloader implemented that would support multiple

from the problem that mirrorbrains forwards me from HTTPS to HTTP if

I know we could disable that error but I'm not really sure that this
is what we want. With metalink files we get the metalink description
over https , which includes all checksums for the several chunks and
then can use http connections as well because we can check if we
really got what we asked for.

Would be interesting to know here if we can configure mirrorbrains
to just redirect to HTTPS if that's what the incoming connection is

mirrorbrain does currently not support https. It simply does not
know about it.

That explains, can we somehow fix or work around that?

Basically someone would need to do some work on mirrorbrain itself, the
code. It would be very nice to support https as well as ipv6.
