exactly ... does it really need to be integrated?  up until now it 
really hasn't, and it works just fine with movies/shows downloaded via 
bittorrent (not that i'd know, of course ;) ...)

if people really want to do that, they can fire up azureus, bitcomet, 
bit tornado, or any of the other many, many, many bittorrent clients and 
still use myth to view/organize them

exactly, it's playing with fire ... sure, nothing may ever come of it, 
but i'm sure any developer wouldn't want to fork out the cash for a 
lawyer when it wasn't their idea in the first place ...
