My interest in bittorrent is mainly because of a few useful podcatchers

tribler relatedly?

Yes. Tribler is backwards compatible. Others using say transmission can transfer to & from Tribler

Anyway, a plugin for MediaGoblin on Tribler is welcome if you want to
write it!  Maybe you could help adoption in this way.

My plan is to do a non-evil decent digital video distribution biz (bye bye tv, amazon, hulu, netflix, youtube rent, bappletunes, etc). I expect I will use mediagoblin. So it looks like this newbie is going to be leaning python on the job. I doubt very much that my skills (my current level is html,css,bash) would be good enough to write a Tribler plugin any time in the upcoming years. Then there is other things. Anyway there is the wait for Tribler to be more suitable for a server. I would raver get on with what I can with the biz to make money and provide bounty for anyone who wants to make a Tribler plug-in.

In the meanwhile, bittorrent support is not a high priority, but it is
somewhere on my stack of things I'd like to see because of the above!

Please don't put your efforts into legacy bittorrent, put your effort
into supporting Tribler! Tribler is 100% decentralized, backwards
compatible, FLOSS and bit of a resource hog :). Currently lacking
software for servers because it needs the GUI but its on there todo list.

Sorry if I sounded hash. I'm just fed-up with projects keenly putting there precious effort into old bittorrent not future bittorrent.

Oh and BTW in a future version of Tribler it will be anonymous and have faster transfer at the same time! There was a talk about it.
