I've seen that this has started to appear in the latest revisions. Great work.

I have some suggestions regarding the UI of this feature. (should this be a separate feature request?)

* Displaying search results and downloading as separate steps
* Displaying search results immediately, then a per-result, cancelable, download
progress indicator.
* Elective blocking (whether to not display in results, or not download by default) based on past selections: e.g. don't download samples by user X, or with a tag Y
* Use a sidebar tab as the interface (see add-in for firefox for an example of what I'm thinking) This could allow downloads to continue without blocking the whole app.

Yes, those last two are probably very non-trivial.

All the information you would need for the blocking, I suspect, is contained in the XML metadata files that are currently being stored in ~/Freesound/snd/. (current for me being r3186 in 2.0-ongoing)

should this be closed now?

not really. freesound realized that they had a broken API and started fixing it. that was about 18 months ago. they are not done yet.
