I just tried to de-clutter the download tab a bit by collapsing the albums I had queued for download, but noticed that this also hides how many are queued before you. Since I'd done my best to be polite and spread the downloads out between users (The new search was a bit jarring at first, but the ability to collapse entire users in it is very nice for things like that! Good job!) the numbers vary quite a bit.
Maybe when a folder or user is collapsed, the Place column could show the lowest number in the subfolder? This could be applied to the Folder and File columns too, to summarize how many collapsed files or folders are under a user or folder.
