This intrigued me, so I poked at the information on BITS a little. MSDN 
provides some fluff about using it, but doesn't give very much information 
interesting for implementing the COM interface, what a surprise.

Anyway, I don't know what shape our iphlpapi is in, but I think it should be 
possible to at least get the basic features working in the context of a SoC 
project. Advanced features like authentication seem to rely on SPNEGO (MSDN 
calls it Snego, which is interesting, as all other MS papers I know call it 
Negotiate) to negotiate Kerberos or NTLM, and that's not there yet. Then 
again, I wouldn't call this a necessary feature.

Go for it, people, only three days to do some more research on this. :)
