I will try this when I get time...

Here is a note... I am using the --spider option now and it looks like it
also downloads and saves the file to disk and then removes it when it is
done... I don't mind on that, but it doesn't match the documentation...

Also, if I use wget in spider mode, it will at the end of the log output
tell me about all the broken links... but I also need to know what page
those broken links are created on (if the broken link) is on the site I am
getting... this will help me find the 404 on my site...

I have a vision for how this should work to make it awesome...

Any way to do that, or anyone want to add this functionality?
