I know what seeders and leechers are, what I don't know is why it
prints two different numbers for each one and what they mean :-).

To me it seems like reading an inventory list at a hardware store and
finding an entry that says

Hammers: 12(47)

Do we have 12 hammers or do we have 47 hammers? What the heck is the gui
trying to tell me here?
