I think a limited version of fetch in /rescue is a good idea!  I'll take a go
at building one.

For stream progress during transfers in rescue mode, I use `dd
status=progress`.  It's not something I've had to do very often since the
systems I manage I can lay hands on but it works in a pinch.

# cat base.txz | nc broken-host.example.net 9999

# /rescue/nc -l 9999 | /rescue/dd status=progress > /base.txz

Then I use /rescue/md5 to verify the tarball.  :)
