Ok, it would mean running bittorrent alongside thttp. Not a huge drain

What are you talking about? I run a mirror AND I run the torrent tracker
for fedora releases. Guess what - the tracker and the seed eat an
enormous amount of the total cpu time on that machine.

Much higher than just apache or thttpd.

No, there would be a dedicated tracker. There is no reason why they couldn't be dedicated seeds as well (as opposed to leapfrogging of current mirror). It would just depend on the scale and size of the BitTorrent network apart from FTP and HTTP updates.

Sorry but if it means 20MB that the mirrors don't have to provide (IE:
from users upstream connections) it is a huge success IMO.

The mirrors are still going to take a primary hit as the seeds - and fast seeds at that.
