Caching of public hublist

Maybe it would be a good idea to let DC cache the current hublist, and show that cached list till the new one is fetched, the advantages are - at startup, you can immediately join a hub (if you need the new one, you can still wait as usual) - if the download fail, you still have the last version of ...

Being able to see up/down ratio of clients

When you are in a hub, it would be handy to see what the upload/download ratio of a user is, so when a user is slotbegging you are able to see if he is worth a slot or he is just a leecher. The info can be stored at the same place as the e-mail or description.

Re: Tree-Style Groupings

When DC groups everything together to one item, what name should that item have? How should DC know what the 'normal' name for that item is?
