I would like to know (if) it will be added in (the) future or not. Nobody is working on it, so the closest you can get to an answer is "not yet."

On my system, hashing is I/O bound. We had a similar request sometime not too long ago, and I think it was I/O bound on other people's systems as well.

If you limit the number of your downloads using the setting, DC++ should only use three "download minislots" (for high priority files and file lists).
