Added untested patch linear_download.patch:

new option file_random_download in swarmer section of files.ini

file_random_download = true (default) -> current hard-coded default
file_random_download = false -> linear download

Currently no GUI stuff coded, value has to be changed manually
in files.ini while MLDonkey is not running. GUI stuff will be
done later when this patch is proven to work.

#5049 #4851 and #4398 all seem to be basically the same.

Ive done some small research into this and here is a possible implementation:

- implement a vector of priorityfields matching the chunks to download vector.

- initially only prio 0 and 1 are implemented, 0 meaning dont down, 1 download

- one has to match file boundaries to the chunk vector. this is mostly already present

- there needs to be some commands that sets the download prio vector according to which files in the torrent should be downloaded. not so hard given the above. be conservative and download whole chunks spanning boundaries.

- the initial implementation would just fool the download scheduler that prio 0 chunks are already downloaded

- the next step would be to implement actual priorities, which would be harder...

this incremental plan looks doable and will bring a quite useful feature even at its simplest level

[field #10]      Original Submission: Hi,

Could you implement the not random downloaded for specific files?. That is,
when we click in one file (in the Transfers-->Download web menu), all file
info appears (all of its names, network, priority, sources, ...). In that
menu, could you add a checkbox like this:

[ ] Downloaded parts in random order

So, with that feature, we could choose that all files were downloaded with
downloaded parts in random order with exceptions (files we want to download
not randomilly for any reason)

Thanks,
Xan.

PS: Useful for specific type of files you interest that download not-randomilly (films, music, ... ) rather than other (like .iso, .rar, ...) that you want to download randomilly.
