Feature request: bit torrent based content distribution

I would love to see a really simple and secure bit torrent client built into the network enabled Brightsigns. This would allow for far more efficient content updates. For example lets say, we publish a new video file, rather than each Brightsign (up to 7 per client site) downloading the same video, tieing up the internet connection for hours. A correctly configured bit torrent system would allow for the video to only be downloaded once by one Brightsign and then the other 6 Brightsigns could get there copy from the "local" Brightsign that has completed the download.

Yes, bit torrent does have a bad name for downloading illegal content, but it can and is used for good. Case in point.
