I also think the DownloadInAdvance (or even better DownloadInHeaps)
should be our new default. At least once yast and zypper is ready for this.
No, please stay backward compatible.
How that would break compatibility?

You need room on your disk to store all of the rpms.

So what? When you're out of space, you'll change the default. You're
usually not out of space. And with DownloadInHeaps, the space should not
be a problem anyway. I really don't see why we should not default to the
safer mode.

Also, we should check whether there is enough space on the drives we use
anyway. But that's probably something for the future.
