Hi,

We can call the swarm defined by Bruno's first mail as a BT system .But the
system has never run .
In fact,according to BT spec when a BT system begin to run ,every peer in
the system random select
a piece if seed unchoke it. After that ,peer in the system can run 'rarest
first' strategy to select piece
from each other.
Partial sequential piece selection has made mainly by p2p multimedia
software .For p2p file downloading
client softwares employing BT spec,they run 'rarest first' strategy .

Regards,
David
