you are right, it's more like a workaround/hack in case nothing else 
works. and it involves some tweaking, that's true.

for the purpose of http-downloading, one would also need a 3rd party 
commandline program like "wget" (at least for windows, as it's not native).

anyway, i just thought i'd add this method to the suggestions.
