Joichi Ito has seeded a bittorrent for TeX Live, but from his laptop,
which isn't always on, etc.  Maybe someone else would like to take 
this up?  I've attached the "torrent file" he sent me.

Intentionally leaving off Joichi's email to try not to add to his spam,
will send to anyone who wants it.

Instructions that I could put onto the TL web pages would be welcome, too.

Just download the client


Then open the torrent file [attached]. You may need to click  
start (the button that looks like a play button.) Then it will start  
downloading from peers. After it has downloaded it, if you keep  
BitTorrent open, it will automatically be "seeding" by making your  
copy available for others to download from as well.
