ahh very interesting indeed :) I am not understanding what exactly the
issue is in this thread. I have to say that torrents are so much better
then traditional means to download.

Im think though with standard downloads granted they are throttled and
seems like rather heavily. Regardless what mirror i use in my geographic
location the downloads start off at a decent speed and eventually slow down
to a crawl. This leaves much to be desired in the sense of someone setting
this up in an organization as mission critical piece of software.

have the webseeds to get things going?

Nope, webseeds are traditional mirrors (as opposed to peer-to-peer),
and those sync via rsync.
Those are added to the torrent files and can be used as fallback in
case the tracker is offline or when there is no seed available.
