Bug#298602: RFP: klibido -- KDE usenet news binary grabber

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : klibido
  Version         :
  Upstream Author : Alessandro "Bauno" Bonometti <bauno@inwind.it>
* URL             : http://klibido.sf.net/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : KDE usenet news binary grabber

Klibido automates the tedious task of grabbing binaries off
usenet that are split across dozens of posts.

The main features of Klibido are:
 -automatic joining and decoding of multi-part posts
 -multiple servers support, with priorities and fallback servers if some
  articles are not available on some servers
 -queue balancing: KLibido spreads the bytes load across servers with the
  same priority
 -multiple download threads per server support, with the ability to add or
  remove threads "on the fly"
 -KParts interface for previewing posts (.nfo, images, etc...) inside the
 -pause, resume, cancel, and prioritize downloads
Klibido is still in beta stage, and as such some components may not
work as expected and may even crash the program.  However, the author states:

     "if you treat it gently :-], it will work, and I've used it to download
     two hundreds or so of Gigabytes without any major issue."

There's already a basic debian/ directory in the source
provided by Gonéri Le Bouder in 2001.
