Er, you want to torrent a 7 MB file? ;) That would be a waste of effort
and resources server-side, and a minor hassle client-side. Plus the file
is so small it won't shave any significant load off the server,
especially when nobody will bother to seed it. I'm sure most *nix users
get GHC from their distribution's mirrors anyhow. Mirrors are really
what you need. ;)
