Bug Description

We're currently adding support to the webbrowser-app to allow it download files internally in addition to sending them to other applications, currently download manager has a metadata property titled "showInIndicator", however this doesn't appear to have any effect when the transfer is happening inside an application without content-hub involvement.

This results in an inconsistent experience for the user, as some downloads from the browser show up in the indicator (those opened immediately with other apps) and some don't (those downloaded for later use).

This dovetails with work that Renato and I started last week to show other non-download-manager transfers. The use case we're already looking at is calendar syncing.

It's a work in progress, but the relevant branches are at

and

https://code.launchpad.net/~renatofilho/indicator-transfer-buteo/initial-version/+merge/266949

In the browser case however this is actually a DownloadManager based transfer, it just isn't using content-hub to send it to another application. Presumably it should be possible to expose DownloadManager based downloads without requiring apps to write additional plugins?

I confirmed this is still an issue, even with silo 24 installed
