Is "Bittorrent" something different from bittorrent?  Honestly, I think
this has been said before- but if a set of data available via
bittorrent is not popular enough that someone decides to mirror it with
http, thats just too bad.

Of course, now I'm thinking about whether its possible to use a
combination of fuse, iso9660, bittorrent, and yum to provide a software
repository distribution mechanism that doesn't rely on http mirrors
with lots of space and bandwidth...

(i.e. think fuse-bittorentfs with an iso9660 layer in there, and a
default yum base config that plays well with such a configuration. 
Probably too much overhead in there, but it sounds tempting to me)
