Automatic downloading in Limewire

Limewire is a P2P program for downloading files. I made it possible to automatically download a list of files. The modification makes it possible to load a list of searches from a file. Limewire will do all these searches and download the best match for every search. This way, it effectively downloads all files in a list.

When a search is done, the first file in the results window is downloaded and the results window is closed. When the results are sorted by number of hosts serving the file, the most popular file is downloaded, which is often satisfactory.
