Already possible, first an entry in .mailcap will get you part of the way there for your chosen download agents. Now this last part I would like to know how to do. A way exists to add options to the lynx download menu and there those download agents could be offered. I'm pretty sure both pieces will be necessary. I found more than a single download option added to a lynx download menu I think on Lynx normally offers download to a local file and print but if I remember had download with kermit in addition.

I would like to ask consideration be given to making the file download agent a 
configuration item in the same way an alternative editor can be used.

One could use for exampl curl or wget with their particular options, or in my 
intrest an agent which speeds download time by spliting the file
at its origin by multiple parallel requests and then reassembling it locally.

I use a mac and examples of the latter are axel or aria2 which have many 
options as well as to how the download is done.
