A "cool" project that appears to needs a coder is mod_bittorrent.  The
initial objective is to dynamically build a torrent file for a user
requested file.  This could be integrated into httpd by sending large
files as torrents when the user agent states that it accepts
application/x-bittorrent, and/or when the server notices that the
number of downloads for the file has risen rapidly.

This would complement the incomplete firepuddle project from last years SoC.
