This is not an area I know much about, but what is the objection to seeding?  I
imagine you will get the maximum benefit by using an open tracker which is
already tied into search services.  And if your mirrors agree to use this
protocol, they would provide a natural pool of seeders, even before they have
finished replicating.

One major down side of the torrent idea is that it would be inefficient to
offer incomplete dumps, because the .torrent would have to be changed as data
grows.  Unless there is a workaround, it would only make sense to wait until
the dump is completed--by which point the data has aged...
