I wrote the Torrent library. I was not sure what license to pick so I picked
GPL. I can pick something different if it makes things easier. My intent was
to make it freely available for any purpose. I can change the license to
Ruby, actually I will change to the Ruby license right now.

I will also upload the latest version with some minor fixes and feature
enhancements. I was thinking the same thing when I read the post about a
ruby "make" or "ant" utility. I think Torrent could make the development of
such a framework much easier.
