Although the code is far from beautiful, it can roundtrip torrent
files and correctly deal with binary hashes, etc.  One of the initial
problems I had was opening large torrents (such as the Fedora Core 2
DVD) because Cohen's spec does not specify that when the spec says
integers it really should be an Int64.


If you just want the "B-Encode" .cs file, 

Hopefully someone can either make use of this or at least use it as inspiration.
