Additional download: suggestions

I tried the download over the weekend. I installed it ok.
I then downloaded the additional stuff.

For some reason the screen savers didn’t want to load
(pkg mgr couldn’t find it).
It then aborted the download.
Maybe it would be best to continue, and not to abort
on a failure?

It would be useful to have a MByte counter so that one
can see something is happening. On a slow(ish) ISP
link, and downloading some of the bigger archives
it’s sometimes difficult to see if anything is happening.

My download went ok (about 2.5 hours), but is it possible to
build in a resume function?
