Yaouh does not seem to do any error checking. If curl fails somehow, 
then it blindly notices that the md5sum of the file doesn't match the 
blank string (or error message) from curl, and downloads the tile.
(Start yaouh without a network, and it will claim to update every file, 
with curl just timing out on every check...)

If wget fails, you just don't get that tile updated. If anything else 
goes wrong, the app crashes. Unfortunately, lots of other things go 
wrong. The gtk libraries comes up with illegal instructions, unaligned 
accesses and segmentation faults now and then.

The speedup trick works, but I'd be the first to admit it isn't 
user-friendly. The worst part of it is that yaouh crashes now and then 
due to gtk problems, and this gets 10x worse with 10 processes. Still - 
restarting various processes 7-8 times gets me the tileset quicker than 
a single standard yaouh run. And the standard yaouh crashes sometimes 
too of course.
