I think that i succesfully
got rid of trackers - i  do not need key to look in the database. 

this
is how my "torrent" file looks like for 500K archive

<rodiHash>
 <folder
name="rodi">
   <file name="C:\temp\rodi\rodi_0.3.04.zip" modified="6:29
PM 4/9/2005" size="566944" blockSize="4194304" blocksNumber="1" md5="56675f2303d5087e80f3aea757a37d45">

      <blocks type="md5">
        <block index="0">56675f2303d5087e80f3aea757a37d45</block>

      </blocks>
   </file>
 </folder>
</rodiHash>

What is really nice
about it, that you can send this thing using email or chat or any message
board or mailing list, you can event write it down on paper and send by regular
mail.
