A fact that you know because you are a dev, but not because you read it

do the downloading.

because zypper does not use libcurl to do the downloading.. :) it is
libzypp that do,specifically, when MediaCurl interface is used, that
depends on what kind of repository we are talking about.

Whatever :-)

The fact remains that we users do not know what it uses to download and how can we adjust it, it is not documented what zyppers uses.

And, as has been commented that zypper now uses or will use aria2c or
metalinks libs to do the downloading, I'm not sure if zypper in 11.1
still uses curl or not.

libzypp uses libcurl unless ZYPP_ARIA2C environment variable is defined.

One more little thing to note.
