Many users do not necessarily download the .nfo or .sfv files. I for one, routinely do not. So that would not be a viable option for the default.

As one who has wound up with 100+ duplicate files due (in a much earlier release of Pan) to crashes coupled with me forgetting what I'd grabbed already, I'd also say that's a pretty nifty idea! :)

Thinking about this a sec... don't SFV files contain some kind of hash that pertains to the files they describe? Could Pan use that to determine whether we should bother to download a particular file? Parsing SFV and NFO files could be handy for other reasons, as well, though this is probably "cosmetic" functionality...
