Default Req: Minimum total download speed to start additional download

Minimum total download speed:
Option to allow override max download limit if speed is below minimum.

Sub-option: Max additional downloads:
If user set max downloads to 1, and max additional downloads to 2, then JD will never go higher than 3 downloads even if they are all slow.

Scenario:
Some hosts are much slower than others. Even the same host can sometimes give slow connection when other times they give fast connection. This new option would start another download if max downloads are active but under speed minimum set by user.

Example:
Minimum total download speed set to 200kB. Max downloads set to 2. User has 2 active downloads but they are both slow so total download is 120kB. JD then starts third download that is 100kB and total download speed reaches 220kB.
