Some time ago I had looked at sources for this problem. And it seemed not very
hard to create fetcher at the creation time of download summary window instead
of do it after clicking 'Ok'. But I had no time to try it, sorry...
I think now there are a lot of changes in sources, but may be it's still not
very hard to implement... may be somebody want to do it? :)
