Did you notice Tools/webchecker/websucker.py in the standard
Python distribution. It can suck down mulitple pages for one
site. I often use it to grab multi-page documents off of the
web for local reading. I don't remember whether it correctly
grabs the image files too. If you'd like to use this problem
as a learning experience, you might be interested in at least
looking at websucker.py.
