  1. Choosing peers based on a traceroute to all the available 
peers, so the number of hops between peers that are exchanging data 
can be kept to a minimum, thus reducing the waste of overall 
  2. Upgrade fields: "Interested", "Interesting" from one bit to 
multiple bit integers, allowing to weight the peers that have the 
most numbers of parts.
  3. Make the protocol more democratic, favorising even more the 
peers that upload more.
  4. How can be done to reduce the low speed of a torrent download 
during the initial phase (first parts downloading), and the end 
pahse (last parts downloading) ? I guess anyone who used BT a lot 
knows that a torrent download has the bad habit to have low download 
speed at the beggining and end.
