Hey folks,

    Today over dinner we were discussing what could be an interesting
project: a class that would implement the BitTorrent file transfer
protocol, it could help to make bittorrent more ubiquitous to download
the same set of files on networks (for example, we were thinking that
software updating could automatically use this feature).

    Just like the WebRequest class, it could be possible to fetch files
using BitTorrent, it could be convenient to transfer files across
machines on networks, so a user could do:

	Torrent t = Torrent.Queue ("my.torrent");
	t.Finished += finished_download;
	t.Start ();
