I'm not sure, either... I'd say that jigdo-easy is a bit outdated,
since it doesn't support the "fallback" feature of newer jigdo-lite
versions. For example, right now an attempt to download Debian 3.0r0
with jigdo-easy would fail for that reason.

Simultaneous downloads are somewhere on the "todo" list, but not very
high up, I'm afraid. Before extending a jigdo GUI application to
support simultaneous downloads, there first has to be a jigdo GUI
application... ;-/
