how to use another downloader with apt-get


Hi, folks!

Due to my university channel properties multithreaded fetching files is very useful for me, but I can't find, how can I tell apt-get to use another downloader instead of wget. Can anyone help me?

Google is your friend!

Note that I haven't tried this before...
