I should have been more clear. --span-hosts will enqueue the other files,
but it will also enqueue files from other hosts. I wish to recursively
download a website but not other sites that it links to.

Of course I could add --accept-regex / --reject-regex options to prevent
wget from wandering onto other hosts. But shouldn't the default --recursive
option simply handle cases where a www is either added or removed? Or is
there any scenario that I am missing which would cause undesirable effects
