It would have to be a half-ass implementation of bittorrent. Like, you'd

From what little i understand of bittorrent it does the uploading while
you are downloading and to get any decent download speed you need to be
upload-enabled ...

Hi Mark,

If the (download manager) daemon listens to the bittorrent port, then it can check current bittorrent downloads and decide what to do. I see no real problem since the daemon will catch the upload petition and if it is going to upload, it can trhough gnome-vfs (provided there is a module).

It will be easy to extend downman to do this, but again, I'm still waiting on gnome-network people to accept downman in.

See you.
