All of this sounds excellent except for small files, If I grab a 
1 MB file from bit-torrent, the time it takes to sync the servers
is slower then it would take to download. Speed doesn't usually pick
up till you're a few minutes into a d/l so for clients I'm not sure
how usefull this would be seeing as most updates are tiny with exception
to the obvious monsters. Maybe limits could be written in. If a file
size is less then two megs its a direct download and for larger files
this new 'yumtode' app could kick in.
