Funny how simple things have become. I thought it would be as
complicated as one HTTP GET :-(

HTTP::Get("myurl", Directory::tmpdir + "/myurl.out"); // (yast2-transfer)

Yes, this solution looks quite simple but the "myurl" might be a bit
tricky if it is not a HTTP-based repository. NFS needs to be mounted
first, CD/DVD too, what about Samba? (etc.) And additionally, the
repository uses "URL" + "Product Path".

Duh, I forgot about that, you're right.
So we just want an equivalent of the above Get that works with all
Zypp media and does not require a repo set-up.
