RE: [equinox-dev] [prov] peer-to-peer downloads (ECF)

Remy, excuse me if this is really basic and naïve.  I've only used bittorent
to download large single wad files...

Would it be reasonable to use bittorent to download *parts* of things?  For
example, if you look at an entire repo as one file then when you want just
one of the artifacts in the file/repo you could appeal to the torrent to get
it.  Seems that bittorent clients can look for peers that have parts of
files so if there was an index saying which artifacts are in what parts of
the torent file, a client could just look for the parts of interest and lay
them out on disk appropriately.

Jeff
