> IO problems are exactly why the SuggestPiece message was introduced.
My POV is that you need to *enforce* a policy to solve disk-io problems.
SuggestPiece can never be used to enforce piece selection.
- A client with full FastPeers support can simply ignore
SuggestPiece and request a different piece
- There are many clients out there without FastPeers support
(uTorrent / Azureus). You'll need to serve such clients, otherwise
you'll harm yourself.
I do not belive that SuggestPiece can solve IO problems in real-world.
Just my 5ç ;-)
