Ok, the new param, "silent" can be added, and it will only say
something is shit goes bad. (Very bad.)

The PIECES string is this: Every buffer that is written to the file
is first completely downloaded. Each buffer is 10MB. There are 40
pieces to each buffer, with each piece being 256KB. A piece is what
is requested when data is requested from an Ares host. So each number
in that string represents the status of each piece in the current
buffer: 0 is idle, 1 is requested, and 2 is complete.
