I took a look at the thread and it does seem a little bit complicated. As
you mentioned in the end, we would still need the add/remove/list APIs and
that would just plain work for media files .. I don't completely follow
the interceptor model but I don't think that was the original requirement
either and it was to address something else (Please correct me if I'm wrong
..). I guess I'll add my comments in there so we can discuss further on
and example use case would be. Say I need to have an offline mp3 player ..
I need to know what files are locally available so that the user can play.
The other side would be that when he is connected online, he can choose to
cache a specific file instead of having to play to get cached or all files
getting cached and so on ..
