it would have to open the files to find this out no? what would be useful is it when download a load of files - it checks after the 1st (.rar?) and if the file needs a password then it pauses the rest of that download.

With repair and extract enabled that's basically what happens, if the first .rar in the set is passworded it all gets paused and NL moves onto the next download. At least, that's what mine does.

I would prefer the files wouldn't be paused but moved to the end of the queue.

Or even better an option: Leech with password.
Several things I download have passwords; so it would be nice if I could enter those passwords before/during download.
