I think you are on the right track when trying to enhance the 'url package. Maybe url-copy-file should be asynchronous and url could provide url-copy-file-synchronously (to mimic the url-retrieve and url-retrieve-synchronously pair)? Until Emacs has a function to copy a URL's contents asynchronously, I'd rather not add this functionality in Org. -- Bastien
