For anyone looking for a project ;-)

I'm curious about if it's possible to create a BitTorrent client 
extension for Mozilla/Firebird.... think about it:

-  Many torrents already exist.  Popular for large downloads
-  Mozilla.org is investigating using torrents for Mozilla releases
-  Could even perform auto-update of Firebird through it in the future

Could integrate it to appear as a regular download (in the download 
manager). 


Written in Python, and open source.(MIT license)

Source:
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/bittorrent/


Anyway, just wondering if anyone with some good mozilla experience was 
looking for a new project.  Would be pretty cool IMHO.  I'm far from 
that level of experience.

Anyway, just a thought.
