Yeah, measurement is done in 1s intervals with no averaging, so it doesn't
smooth out the display of dl/ul speed and it's a bit jumpy.

You can also create symlinks to megatools and if you run megatools via symlink
it will use the right command.

For example:

	ln -s /bin/megatools megals

and it will do the same thing as megatools ls
