problem of piece entropy
was due to a choke algorithm in seed state that take into account the
rate of the downloaders.
The new version of the choke algorithm, which is randomized, lead to an
excellent piece entropy
with a very simple algorithm.
Thus I do not see any striking evidence that the super seeding mode is
still needed. It simply introduces more
