[gnome-network]gnome-network download manager

Hi all,

I'm trying again since last time I didn't got response about it.

Has people looked at downman and considered it for inclusion in gnome-network? If so, what are the problems?

Downman is already working, so making it the base of gnome-network download manager will mean that there will be a lot of time to implement missing and desired features and stabilization.

Downman consists of:
	- downmand: a daemon that takes care of downloading the files
- gdownman: the Gnome 2 GUI that lets you browse downloads, add, start, stop, delete, ... - downman-gmonitor: a simple basket window where you can drop urls from the browsers
	- downman: a simple command line utility to add downloads
- downman-bonobo: it is in the works and will allow for other programs to use downman trough a simple bonobo interface

Downman already can:
- download from HTTP and FTP. But this is to change after moving to gnome-vfs - basic things like adding a download, starting, _queuing_, stopping, delete...
	- limit speed of the downloads
- create different lists of downloads (projects) each with a different target directory and properties
	- limit the simultaneous downloads on a project
	- limit speed of a project
	- do recursive downloads
	- limit the number of connections to a server

I can't remember more right now, well, it also features a nice Gnome 2 GUI with progressbars and mime type icons :)

I don't see why people want to reimplement this from scratch.
