I would still say yes, because the output from berlin is often much
less than my throughput. With multiple downloads in parallel it at
least feels quicker, probably because I can download at full speed.

In any case, I see often a build start while downloads are in progress,
so I think it's still a win if you can get a few derivations built
while waiting for a big download to finish at the same time :)

At some point we might want to prioritize builds/downloads that help
unlock as much builds as possible early, so we don't have builds
waiting for downloads.
