If you want to do it that way, just make sure you receive
/experimental/bittorrent-http-seeding/2008.0/, and run your rtorrent in
that directory, with no write access to the files - that will save you
from having to double-allocate.

If you don't have that directory, you can just make symlinks to the
contents instead of copying. I did mean to say symlink originally, but
forgot about it at the last moment.

There's going to be an -r1 of the installer media coming out due to an
installer bug, so seeding that when it pops out would be good.

Beware that the .torrents may be changed during runs, because they
contain lists of fallback HTTP mirrors.
