Why dont distribute a shellscript that gets URL+cookie as arguments,
and let the users implement their own methods like using wget, ftp,
curl, firefox* or whatever

* = yeah, using surf for browsing and firefox for download is the most
retarded idea i can think of xD.. but surely..opening xterm or having
a way to display all wgets in a single xterm would be good (dvtm?)

Having a suckless download manager can be good. just few locs in sh.
