I had no doubt of that. My point was that if Smart was smart if would know
or find out which files it wants are the largest and start download of
those early, so that those bringing up the tail of the download process
were average size or smaller. That would minimize the delay from
connecting to a slow server that permits higher net throughput when
several files are downloading at once. I had this happen before on Ubuntu,
where was started late and was last to finish by a
considerable margin.
