The BAO module has about 175 images. Are these downloaded one by one?
What happens if there is a failure on downloading, say, the 135th image?
I would think that with an image rich module that there is no constraint
on the number of images it might hold. Is there a good way to improve
the reliability of the transfer of the entire module?
