I stripped off some already begun stuff and added some comments. So now the 
code might be used as a kind of workbench for testing concurrency and/or 
metalink stuff.

The code is written from scratch.
I put it under CC0 License (GNU compatible), so everybody can do what 
she/he/it wants with it.

If I can help out with something regarding the project, drop me a mail.
