How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

New Helper for Downloading from the web

Downloading from the web is a very common thing to do in Apps but it doesn't have any dedicated control for it. So it would be nice to have one.

Feature request for this control:

1. Download.URI(URI) should set the item to be Download
2. Download.GetInfo.Name, Download.GetInfo.Size, ... to get the Info about the item to be Downloaded
3. Download.Start, Download.Pause, Download.Stop
4. Download.GetPercentage to get the download compleated percentage so that it can be used for creating ProgessBar
5. Download.GetSpeed to get the download speed
6. Should support Background Download
