I tried to make it fairly general and customizable, despite the
"" branding.  Ideally, all you would need to do is change
`archive-downloader-file-regexp' to "\\.avi", or whatever the extension
for movies is.  Then pass archive-downloader-get a page of avi links,
and it should Just Work.  Unless the page adds the "style" element to
their links, or some such thing, in which case I would have to make
`archive-downloader-url-regexp' a bit more clever.
