Not knowing the mechanism that mlnet uses to recover from losing all its temp and ini data (after recover_temp) I was wondering if it would be possible to take a partial file from some other application, say a bit-torrent dl whose tracker has been taken offline and is no longer being seeded, rename it to the correct hashed name (after a preliminary download of the identical file) copy that file into the temp directory, then recover_temp. Would this allow for mlnet to take over where the other application left off? I suspect not, but again, having not researched the mechanism, I am only speculating.

Its possible, but you must find the exact file on the other network.

Lets say you have a single file torrent: xyz.avi
You find the same file on EDK and start the download, you will get
a new file in temp_directory: urn_ed2k_BLABLABLABLABLABLA.

Now you stop MLDonkey and rename xyz.avi to the urn_ed2k file,
at the same time overwriting that urn_ed2k file with the previous
partially downloaded file.

You do not need to use recover_temp because the download is known
to MLDonkey but you must use verify_chunks after restart, this command
lets MLDonkey scan the whole file and compare data on HDD with chunk
hashes received from other EDK clients. Chunks (9728000 bytes each)
which pass this hash check are marked complete, this way you will
regain the data already downloaded.
