[gnome-network]Transfer Manager (again!)

Hi all,

I've been working in downman these two weekends, and finaly did a release. Interested people can take a look at downman-0.0.5.

The daemon now uses the gnome-vfs async functions to do the work. I have renamed everything from download to transfer. And by the way did a better separation of the Transfer object and the TransferThread object (multiple threads are closer now :)).

So the next moves are:
	- implement the gnome_vfs_async_seek function that is missing in gnome-vfs
- work on the seek () support for ftp and http (there is a patch in bugzilla for http already) so that we can have *RESUME* support, what is a transfer manager for if it is lacks resume support?
	- move to bonobo for activation and communication.

So what is the current status?

- Are there any bits of the bonobo implementation I can look at? (daemon, middleman)
	- Is there an _interface_ defined for the clients?
- Is there a list of what functions will go into libgnomenetwork to wrap such interface?

I would like to start moving downman to use the bonobo work in gnome-network now, since it is the next natural step. If there are no implementation bits, is there a good definition of the daemon structure? features that will have? ...?
