Agreed, but while syncing the opposite problem might occur..

Valid for rsync but working with wget. The file's links *do* exist and
can be downloaded via wget, wich admittedly has to be tweaked
It worked here for the ISO files issueing:
wget -P ~/<local_dir> -nc -np -nd -nv -ErA "*.torrent","*.mirrorlist"

O.K. Indeed they contain information of "nearby" seeders which depend on

But issues might arise while syncing, done by a cronjob. If for example
you want sync 4 times an hour (as I intended to) then 4 times an hour
the torrent files are downloaded - and thus counted as download. This
might affect stats significantly.
