It sounds like they are trying to make BitTorrent into something that
the masses - both companies and consumers - can use more easily.  To
me, BT is very simple so I don't need a GUI.  I can see that for some
it might be a little too complex so this company is going to use BT to
speed downloads of large files.  They seem to have targeted the gaming
industry which does have needs very similar to what BT provides, but
also needs to have a little of a wrapper around it so that the gamers
themselves just see "fast download, some upload is used, whatever"
instead of "OMG, downloading this new service pack for game X is
taking so long.  I hate this game and instead want to play TuxRacer."
