Feature Request: New downloads have priority

A suggestion for a new feature:

An option to make new downloads take priority in the queue. For example, I have a few projects that I download weekly or monthly, and that take up to 72 hours to complete. But I have others that I download daily precisely because the content changes every day -- if I don`t download on a particular day, I lose that content forever.

What currently happens is that when the scheduled daily downloads start during one of the large weekly or monthly ones, they are put at the end of the queue and are in effect not downloaded for a couple days. That means I lose content. Forever. I`d like the long weekly or monthly downloads to be able to be interrupted by the more recently scheduled ones (e.g. have these projects go to the TOP of the queue and not the BOTTOM).

Yes, I plan to change the queue code in 3.0 version, so each Project would have its own queue. This will allow to use high priority Project downloads and low priority ones.

It is not an easy task, but I hope, I will be able to do it in 3.0 version.
