Well, I have a one-line proof that BitTorrent doesn't scale in the
application I'm interested in (object discovery): it doesn't do it at
all.  ;-)

Jokes aside, my immediate impression was related to what Andrew said
about Debian.  Ie, I can think of situations where it won't help, but
it sure does look like BitTorrent does what it's designed to do very
well, and won't hurt perceptibly in other cases.
