Hi Pascal,

- Multi-threaded downloads using ECF
What do you have in mind here that is different from what we already
have in today?

We currently are not using multiple threads to download different sections of a single (large) file...e.g. thread 1: byte 1-5M, thread 2: byte 5M+1 to end. ECF has the API to do this (via IFileRangeSpecification) but I don't think it's yet being used.

For relatively high bandwidth networks such an approach would be useful. It would also be useful to be able to configure things like # of threads per file/size of block. Basically adding download strategies as discussed last fall, and UI to configure.
