      Maven's dependency downloading is horribly slow.

      It appears to only make one request at a time; often to slow mirrors which take seconds to respond.

      This is not so much of an issue when you use a local repository to keep and manage your dependencies; though it becomes one again once you leave the network of that repository and try to access it over the internet.

      Maven should make multiple (5 or so; configurable perhaps) requests simultaneously so that while several are establishing connection, others are at least already using the available bandwidth. And should mirrors be capped; other artifacts can already be downloaded from other mirrors to make optimal use of the bandwidth. Currently only a fraction of the bandwidth capacity is used; causing an initial build of a large project without a local repository available to take for ever. The project I'm working on; I need to make sure to reserve a day at least should I want to build the code with a client.
