This will result in 5 times the network traffic. For a person who is not 
interested in historical data it will be the least optimal solution. 
Unfortunately does not offer a source bundle download 
any more.

I would suggest one of the following:

Both of them support the resume of the download with 'wget -c' or 
graphical download managers, and both of them will result in much 
smaller download size. Of course RPM then needs 3 layers of unpacking, 
while drops of icedtea 7 will require some manual work to put the tree 
together to make it buildable.
