This is the general idea, except that this is an un-manned operation. All
the data is comming from a database, and retries (count and delay), etc are
parameters. So if it fails, it get left in the queue for a short while, then
a retry is done. The UI is just for monitoring and manual override of
transfers, failed transfers will be logged and email sent to the person who
needed to know.

Consider that you multi download windows have what I call AUTO-RETRY mode,
example, if it cant log into a site, maybe wait 20 seconds and try again and
repeat up to 5 times before giving up or something similar to that.
