When using "--trust-server-names", it would be nice to be able to easily get a list of the files that were downloaded. Maybe one per line.

As per https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/306493/get-the-filename-from-wget-url-trust-server-names, it would be possible to parse the error output stream to get these names, this is extra work.

An extra flag like "--echo-server-names" that makes the stdout print out for every file that was downloaded, as the download is finished, would be very helpful.

Either new-line or space separated I think would work well, but technically filenames could include those characters... Maybe a null-separated list like `find . -print0` can?
