This would require support from the application itself to bind to a
specific local IP address.  You can't use IP routing here because with
bittorrent, you'll be trying to contact a huge number of IP addresses in
all different subnets.  Thus, the application itself has to be smart
enough to do the required magic at a socket/TCP level I think.
