One already has to... for a lot of hosters. Missing several captchas will delay the download considerably.

Since you already figured out a viable approach, how much time do you think it would take a skilled coder to implement it in this simple form? Unfortunately I'm completely illiterate when it comes to coding but surely some JD team member should be able to whip up a three-liner that does not interfere with the current code (changes)?

Which is a resource hog as has been already mentioned. I'm currently using Chronomaster's AutoIt script and a 10 second intervall as a workaround.

No, having a script in the background that checks every 250 ms or so if a window is present consumes CPU cycles better spent for other purposes.
