I also think the DownloadInAdvance (or even better DownloadInHeaps)

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.

Some notes:
- Most of the users have no idea how to change the default.
- Trying to compute how much space you need to keep free for package install
to succeed is non-trivial
- you might end up with a device that's unable to update itself, or only with
very high involvement from expert user
