Oh yes. Not to mention upload and download in parallell. Perhaps the biggest
usage issue is that when one of transfers fail for some reason, it isn't that
easy to display that or which transfer that failed.

And the progress meter would need some imaginative approach to be really nice
when you transfer N files simultanously.

Lots of room for people to step forward and offer some patches! ;-)
