Review request for Marble.


When requesting to download a region/route, currently all affected tiles are downloaded, regardless whether they already exist on disk. A duplication check is done for files in the download queue, but additionally it should be checked whether a file already exists and is not expired.

Not downloading these tiles again makes downloading regions much faster and removes some burden from the servers downloaded from.

Downloading regions and checking that
- not yet existing tiles are downloaded
- expired tiles are downloaded (touch -d 'last month' path/to/tile is your friend)
- already available tiles are not queued for download
