Just had this idea pop up in my mind. Instead of relying on volunteers mirroring package repositories all around the world, why not utilise BitTorrent protocol to move at the very least some some load unto the users and thus increase download speeds as well as decrease latency?

    Bittorrent is nice for getting isos, but it would pul my hair out if I tried to download patches with it.
