 * is expected that such files are quick to download. The main files to
 * download are processed in chunks and progress through repeated calls to the
 * poll function. 
 * It is intended that for a given channel, there will be a system version.
 * These will be in a read-only location and may have been installed as part of
 * a system packge. There will be a user writable location, referred to as the
 * local version. The server version is the file stored on the remote web
