yes, a wrapper for other apps to talk to the daemon or whatever.

hmm, I haven't thought much about it really. Just the general idea. But
well, from the top of my head, I guess we could have that class have
access to a list of in-progress transfers. Those transfers should be
able to be cancelled, stopped and resumed.

I guess having that is a very good starting point, and then we can
extend it.

there isn't a channel yet. If people want, we can create one.
