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?
