We would really rather use less torrents rather than more, also older
versions would then likely have 0 seeds and be unreachable anyhow. ;(

Well, the worst case in the distant past was the RC's for the final
release. Once that was given a "go" many people started grabbing the
images ahead of release day just because they didn't want to wait, and
spreading around the links with "If you don't want to wait until
tuesday, you can get the final release at..." 

Anyhow, like I said, I don't know how much problem it will really turn
out to be.
