I'd like to use this plugin to add a custom download option to the 'Tools' menu on the home screen. I guess this would involve using executeSystemCmd to run a shell script on the device which would (ideally) download from a remote HTTP server a text file containing a list of file URLs to be downloaded, then download each file individually.

On a Linux-based computer this is a relatively easy task, using a command line tool like 'wget' to download the remote files, but on the Kobo I'm not sure what command to use to retrieve remote URLs. Does anyone know if there is any way to do this by running such a command on the device?
