>From my user perspective, BitTorrent (with web seeding, maybe) would
be very welcome. It scales and since checksums are used internally
already, one does not need to verify the download afterwards in an
extra step. Let the community share the load. It's what BT was
invented for. And it works very well for things like BitLove¹ already.
