Martin, BitTorrent could eliminate the need for multiple mirrors altogether. Conventional servers have their place, but take X-Plane for example: <http://www.x-plane.com/demo.html> The BitTorrent download is displayed as the preferred download method, but for those who would rather download from a conventional server there is room for that as well. While 200 kbps is fast enough under most circumstances, I have noticed that the servers are still slow. (The time it takes to connect and at times download) BitTorrent is scalable. The more people downloading, the faster it gets. But I do see your point.
Frederic, you would manage the versions just as it is done now. By the way, the FGFS category is: http://www.open-bits.org/browse.php?cat=64335 If nobody is really interested in this, I won't maintain it in the future.
