wget --help says about -H: go to foreign hosts when recursive.

It doesn't say that when using -H one *must* take every foreign host that
exists on the Internet and I'm arguing that such an interpretation does not
make sense.

One ought to be able to request that wget go to foreign hosts without that
implying that wget mirror the entire Internet. One obvious way to limit
which foreign hosts are mirrored is to use -H in combination with -D.

I can play with lots of wget options, but in the scenario described I want
*all* files from two hosts, but not every other foreign host that might be
referenced by one of those hosts.

What command line would you use for the scenario described?
