I kinda wonder that as well... would abusing BitTorrent help, perhaps? If that's done it'd be nice if there was an ability to limit bandwidth on the client end. I wouldn't mind some of my bandwidth being used for that, but if I use BT unrestricted on my little pipe I notice that everything else slows down, too. If I limit it I can leave it open w/out worry.
