  Or you might want to share, since currently downloaded movies are used
for debugging. This is why I like letting the user decide, and we can
default to /tmp/gnash-$USER if they don't care.

  I haven't seen any pages with multiples of the same name, but I guess
it's possible. We could use mkstemp() to make them all unique, but when
the change to make the plugin stream the movie while downloading is
done, movies won't be downloaded at all anymore except optionally.
