I would like to suggest an improvement for "Selective downloading" options.
Well, if you are downloading a torrent with many *.rar files, you have to download 100% of all to get the final file.
So... unless you change anything, Azureus/Vuze will download all files at the same time, so after an hour download a torrent, will look like:
What I'm saying that is completly random.
If you select file one, wait finish, and select to download 2, will be download, change and set 3...
Why don't you do an option do download in an order, like by name or by size? Then could be:
I said that because if the Azureus crash and you lose the torrent, you'll need to dowload everything again. Doing this, you start at the first file which isn't finished.
Thanks and please, try to do something like that.

The tool would still be useful, if you could select which files to download and which not to. Lets say I only want one file out of a torrent that contains hundreds. It would take forever to download the ENTIRE torrent, whereas downloading just that one file would be a lot faster. Utorrent has the option to do this, as do other programs.
