Well a package installer can't have the knowledge which would be 
required to determine such a decision.

E.g. though a user could be connected via a fast connection he may have 
a limited download contingent or could be charged at a high rate per 
download volume.

I.e. I don't see a possibility but to leave the final decision to the user.
