I don't plan on using the torrent client unless I can find some unquestionably 
legal source.

I've wondered about my using bittorrent to DL Linux distros causing my ISP to 
pay attention to what I'm doing.

The "BitTorrent equals Piracy" attitude has always bothered me, there are lots 
of legal uses for it.  That attitude is probably responsible for the lack of 
interest in a BT client for Myth, the devs know there are legal uses, but 
also recognize that most people don't know it.

The Myka was supposed to have the BT logo on it, but some legal problems made 
that go away, not that it matters to me.
