Thanks for the suggestion

For some (many?) purposes, yes,  Like for downloading an entire
tree, of course.

But say I'm grabbing files about a given subject.  I google
the subject-name, and find some stuff here, some there,
some of them buried way down in some dir-structure --
and for this kind of thing, I want all of them that
I've checked out to be good stuff to be stuffed into
the same directory, like maybe

     myHistoryDoc/historyOfEmacs/

What then?

Thanks,

David
