 Attachment:   http://drupal.org/files/issues/bittorrent.module (7.17 KB)

This is simple node type that handles bittorrent files.
Users can upload bittorrent files (created via btmaketorrent.py for
example). The module stores the uploaded file and the original filename
into the drupal database.
The bittorrent file can then be published and downloaded by users.

The module needs its own table to store the filename and the file (as a
blob) :
CREATE TABLE `bittorrent_metainfo` (
       `nid` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
       `filename` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
       `metainfo_info` MEDIUMBLOB NOT NULL,
       PRIMARY KEY  (`nid`)

Let me know what you think about this simple module.
