Humm, this might be an idea for a future release ; 
somethink like a more powerful "near" option

This would require some coding - as the current "wizard" 
(which decides which link has to be downloaded) does not 
even know the upstream tag name which generated the link.

This would cause another problem: how to handle a href's 
and img src's identical links?a href's won't be downloaded (not "embedded"
file), but img 
src's will - so what to do in this case:

<a href="foo.gif">
<img src="foo.gif">

The first link will be rewritten as absolute link ; not the 
second. This might cause annoying side effects?
