Good point, but invalid. I suggest priorizing peers receiving less 
pieces from other peers, not the ones sending less to other.

By definition, if a peer is receiving less pieces that other, is 
because, it is sending faster to the other.

Think about a seeder and two peers swarm.

I think you missunderstand my proposal :)
