Hi John,

as I understand your aim, you want Wget behave a bit more like a browser in 
respect to downloading. This means after downloading the first HTML page, 
first download non-HTML links (mainly images), second HTML pages.

I don't see a reason why the 'deepness' of those HTML pages should matter when 
queuing. Since a user doesn't know how deep the link is that he clicks on.

This leads to a queuing without sorting: put the HTML links at the bottom and 
the non-HTML links to the top. This would lead to a download order that you 
documented under 'lifo download links directly after its parent page'.

Did I missed something ?
