The permaseed application of the osprey project, which has recently
achieved alpha status, allows overlapping torrents.
http://osprey.ibiblio.org  Torrents are seeded using torrent-to-root
directory mappings.  For example:

dir1.torrent	/path/to/files/directory1
dir2.torrent	/path/to/files/directory2
dir3.torrent	/path/to/files/directory3
alldirs.torrent	/path/to/files

With a little foresight in organizing source directories and creating
torrents, you can have several torrent combinations with a single copy
of the content.
