But the issue is that prior to running this, I have no idea what the redirect will be. And, I have 4 different things to download like this.

I want wget -- since it is already following redirects -- to update the name it will use. And that I have no idea how to do.

This is coming from I hate the new Gmail web look, and dislike Mail only slightly less.
