  Makes slimrat work in the background, by properly forking and redirecting
  the output to a specified logfile. Only one file can be backgrounded at a
  time, to support multiple instances you'll need to specify differend
  state files to save the instances PID in.
--kill
  Kills a single active client, by looking up the PID in a predefined state file.
--list
  Uses the given file as a queue-file containing URLs.
--check
  Do not download the loaded URLs, just check them.
--to
  Specifies the target directory for the downloaded files.
--address
  Makes the download client bind to a specific address.
--config
  Load custom configuration file.
--debug
  Enables maximal verbosity, which includes a lot of text on the screen and the generation
  of an additional dump archive.
  WARNING: do not use this option by default, as it keeps a whole lot of extra information
           in memory (including _all_ downloaded items).
--quiet
  Makes slimrat less verbose, only displaying errors and warnings.
