True, and this practically disqualifies it from being a part of epiphany
b) the features of a complex download manager that "Regular User"
actually use (resuming a download between sessions, handling downloading
from external apps without launching the browser, etc) could be added to
epiphany's download manager.
This sounds sensible. The download-between-sessions is related to bug
128048, but for sessions and the other things you mention I can't find
any bugs. Would you care to file one?
Question to all: is this important enough to put on the roadmap for 1.6?
So, my interpretation of what Murray said is: "we don't need/want a
complex download manager, we want epiphany download manager to do a
few things more"
Thanks for the summary.
