Does anyone thinkl that it would be a good idea to have
a batch system so that advanced users can write
commandsa to send to the core on certain events
happening. For example when all the downloads
complete a batch file could be started to quit the core.

A dialogue box could be made to have all the events on
and a file assigned to each.

    yeah, and lets make it link to the NASA satellite and a
    kernel module to free filesystem space when we're running out

    I think this is a bit overkill to be honest.

    There is little I can imagine that couldn't be done with a normal
    independent perl/bash/python script in the background really.

    To take your example: You can easily check whether /your/temp
    folder has subdirectories and/or foo/1.x.part files left in them. If yes,
    there are still downloads going on. If no, not. If no, you can call
    ed2k_shutdown (http://ed2k-tools.sf.net) to shut down the core, or
    send a command to the GUI via the ~/.ed2k_gui/pipe, like:

    echo "ed2k://|command|dumax 0 3|/" > ~/.ed2k_gui/pipe

    to lower the upload (for example).

    Cheers
    -Tim
