I hope that's a joke, because, based _solely_ on that comparison table, the
reason one should use snarf over wget is because it has a cool progressbar. I'd
rather have the recursive download support that wget has and snarf lacks.. I'll
take a look at snarf, anyway, it might be nicer than wget here and there.
