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
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.
