[BitTorrent] Restrict BT to specific IP's

There are clients that allow you to restrict access to torrents you're
downloading with by IP range already,
Restricting yourself to domestic IPs may prove to be more harmful to your BT
experience though, especially if no one else in your country is downloading
the same torrent.

  Hello there,

  Up here in Iceland, one has to pay for overseas upload/download but
  domestic traffic is free of charge. What I would like to do is to
  patch BT so that I can only connect to specific IP address ranges and
  reject incoming connections from IPs not in those ranges. In general I
  would like to write a custom python routine that decides if a
  connection is allowed or not.

  I know python so I could probably figure this out for myself, but if
  someone could kindly point me in the right direction as to where in
  the code I should plug in code to validate and authorize connections
  (both incoming and outgoing).

  If this works well for me I'd be happy to provide a patch.

  Arnar
