There is some merit to this. Amtrak, by the direction of the Feral Railroad Administration, already had guidelines for using electronic devices near suspected explosive devices. However, they is a matter if discretion. Is electronic communication used for dicumenting an event. Or is it used for sending a signal to detonate a device? It is hard to tell.

The only thing I would want from qtorrwnt is a way to add previously downloaded content, via magnetlink, from the command line. I would love to be able to add a magnetlink and set the download location to where the content already resides. Then verify and seed. So far only transmission has allowed me to do this. Works very well with my reseeder tool.

The fact that it comes setup with cocky, ob-keys (hot keys for web, file manager, ...), openbox was nice. Way back when I gave it a try and moved on to archbang then arch. It is just nice that it provides a certain try of environment out of the box. I'm sure one could make a post install script to do the same with arch or Debian but that takes time. Sometimes I just want to get to work and install my other software that I need.

We don't really understand it, so we'll give it to the programmers.
