Speed Improvement for Metagoofil (Intelligence Gathering)

I made some speed bumps to the source code for metagoofil by adding in some threading code to speed up the downloading process.
The below tests were done on a vmware guest with 4GB of ram with 1 processor (2 cores).

Results might varies on your machine.

For the below test, I ran metagoofil against microsoft.com for 100 pdfs.

Results show that you can get quite a significant speed improvement if you are downloading a lot of documents for analysis with metagoofil.
