Wikix has been open sourced under the GNU Public License.   This program 
will read any XML dump from the foundation and create
paralell processes which will download all images for a given Wikimedia 
Project.   The program also contains full UTF8 detection
and conversion if enabled. 

For all the folks wondering how to get the images, download the code, 
build it, and run it from linux or Windows and 36 hours
later, Commons, or any Wikimedia project images will be downloaded.    
This one is free.  The other tools cost money.  :-)
