I only wanted to use tor for my connections with the 
tracker-connections, since ktorrent has an option for setting a
http-tracker-proxy. That does not mean, that all download-traffic 
goes through tor. I think it's reasonable to do this, whatever files 
anybody wants to share - and it does not use a lot tor-bandwidth.
