So I am not an Ubuntu Developer, but IMHO a download GUI should not be
introduced to the desktop seed unless it has been introduced to GNOME
proper. As it happens, (if I remember correctly) another download
GUI (not d4x) has been proposed for inclusion in GNOME-2.10, but did not
recieve a lot of support by the GNOME guys.

There is already some downloading support normal users can/should be
able to live with in Epiphany (and Firefox, probably).

Supported Ship seed is probably another matter, d4x (or another download
GUI) might make sense there for power users, dunno.
