Probably what would be worthwhile is some work to be done on the current
bittorrent tracker and launcher code to allow restricted ip lists.
so the tracker could say: allow connections from these systems
and the clients could send a list of systems they can talk to, from that
list, to the tracker.
so when someone in europe wants to get some data, the tracker knows not
to hand the european mirror the url to the australian peer.
The tracker is actually shockingly simple code and handling restricted
ip lists should not be very hard. Handling which peers get sent to each
other might be a bit trickier.
