Default Feature Request: Make Google Drive downloader use workaround for data transfer limit

When too many people download a file from Google Drive, a limit is reached and then you can't download a file from Google Drive. But you can actually save said file into your own Google Drive when you are logged in (there's a little button shown on the file's download page with a + symbol), make a copy, and then download that copy without problems.

It can be a bit annoying doing this for many files. Would be very cool if this could be automated in jD2 when you enter Google Drive account data.

Ideally it would work like this:
1. Check if file can be downloaded.
2. If not, check if there is space left in the saved Google Drive account's own drive to copy this file.
3. Make a copy of this file on the saved account.
4. Download or keep downloading from that source.
5. Once download is finished, automatically remove the file from the saved Google Drive account again. (this could be made optional, but I think it should remove them by default or else it will clog up the drive real quick and require user intervention to make it work again.

I don't know how much work it would be to implement, but it's pretty straightforward to do using the normal website interface.
