rtorrent can download the files itself. (Note that some BitTorrent sites
require cookies for authentification though; I'm using lynx to download
these then, store them in a temp dir, and pass the local path of the temp
dir to rtorrent.)

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
