Thanks - the while loops where there so that we would get hostname and
directory information. Else, wget-retriever should check that it has
a hostname and directory before trying to call wget. Just having wget
dying isn't a very nice thing to do, imho. Especially when we are
using busybox wget which doesn't give any error messages.
