Tony wrote a hack for himself that wrote better-parsed log output in XML format. XML probably doesn't meet some of the requirements I wrote at http://wget.addictivecode.org/FeatureSpecifications/SessionInfoDataBase, but some of this code would probably be useful toward that goal?

The MIME type entry in such a database could be really useful for situations such as the one in bug 20496, where a file's Content-Type cannot be easily obtained from the server after it has been downloaded.

It would be useful to expand this concept with information from the response headers, such as MIME type and character encodings; and the original URI and how it got its current name (redirections tracing, or Content-Disposition)...

A mechanism for wget to remember timestamps and files that it has downloaded in the past, so it only fetches the new files. http://www.mail-archive.com/wget@sunsite.dk/msg08475.html
