I don't think the bittorrent structure is well designed for that particular 
purpose, just the way the blocks will naturally fall (multiple files per 
chunk, file ends spread across chunks, adding a CRLF in the first file means 
retransferring the entire fileset), the complexities of handling the 
torrent, etc it really wouldn't make sense. The closest would be to use RSS 
with torrents, but that still has the the big problems.

The other available p2p options I immediately thought of aren't much 
immediate help either.

That's not to say there isn't a solution, just that I can't think of a 
disclosable p2p system that offers what you need easily.
