I had begun work on Data Downpour (now on the abandoned projects list).
There's some bEncode code out there, but I became disillusioned (lack
of documentation, rapid changes that broke extensions) about Firefox
development shortly there after. I had also screwed up a commit (I was
brand spanking new to CVS at the time) and I couldn't get any assistance
from the admins here, so I gave up on mozdev as well.
There's no reason why an integrated BT client wouldn't be a possibility.
The only outstanding question that I had was a means of generating an
SHA1 hash on blocks of data. A search of LXR for 'SHA1' returned a few
hits, but nothing that I was able to make sense of (LXR seems to be down
right now or I'd provide some links.)
