I want that one to stay in as well.  I use it exclusively, as flag caused me 
issues.  Basically, if I flag and flagged download, it makes it more 
difficult to start a second task in the same group b4 the first is finished, 
all the while keeping track of what I already have downloading, without 
causing the second task to overlap the first, as it would otherwise, keeping 
the first one flagged then hitting download flagged.

I reassigned the function to an easy hotkey, F1, so I can easily middle-click 
the first post, shift-click the second (or shift-home or end if selecting to 
the end, to bad the keyboard selection wont work to the middle very well) to 
get a range, then hit F1 to download, then go find the next range and hit F1 
again.  That way, the downloads don't overlap, but it keeps the mark there so 
I can track what I've already marked for d/l.

This functionality is definitely core to the way I use PAN, and I'd be rather 
at a loss without it.  So, please do not remove it.
