Okay, I'll experiment with it.  Question for Charles [or anyone]:  how
does Pan allocate the jobs between servers; and can the mechanism be
specified by the user?  Example:  I would want the bulk of downloads
to come from any servers which don't charge by usage (usually my own
ISP) and any backup fills from the more expensive servers.  This strikes
me as a non-trivial task.  I wonder how the Windows-based downloaders
solve this problem (I don't use Windows so I've never tried them.)

I hate light text on dark background because I can never read it -- and
suspect it's because I'm red-green color-blind.  Maybe you are too?

Thanks for the great summary!  I will definitely be following along
with the latest updates from Charles from now on.
