We discussed that and, while it may take some of the load off, it will not be a 
complete solution. Many corporate users are behind very draconian firewalls 
that will not let torrents through. And even if the firewalls do allow, there's 
a question of whether torrents are permitted by the company's network 

So we must offer HTTP too and use a CDN for that. Nokia already has this set up 
for the current system...
