I am not sure why you expect that all the resources from 60 "branches" can be downloaded in less than 60s when the "branches" itself can't. But that does not really matter.

We simply can't change the default behavior of Wget for everyone just because you have a benefit. We have to be very conservative when touching default behavior.

To get your patch into git please add a command-line option to activate LIFO behavior.
Like e.g. --queuing=[FIFO|LIFO] with FIFO as default.

What do you think ?

Changing recursion collection from fifo to lifo to download recursion branch page resources immediately following the branch page download.

Test case: The level 0 page has >60 branches that takes 1 s each to download and whose resources expire in 60 s. The fifo queue download all branch pages before downloading any branch page resources. The branch page resources have expired by the time they are to be downloaded.
