At the risk of getting stoned for heresy ;) I'm wondering why .torrent
files aren't implemented in XML? The recent thread confusing the filename
encoding scheme suggests that a human-readable, extensible,
self-documenting format, one with many off-the-shelf tools available, would
be better than a new binary format.
What constraints make the binary format preferable?
BTW, the archives don't show any previous discussion of XML:
