If Tor is installed system-wide and the download site actually supports
resumes (if it's http, it may not; if it's ftp, it's bound to work afaik),
you can just do

torify wget -c http://site.com/file.ext

If it breaks (or you need to stop - ctrl+c), you can resume later on by
executing that same command.

That should be safe, right? wget does not store cookies if it's not told to
do so explicitly, I think.
