The basic trick of OnionCat is that it converts the hidden service's onion id 
into an IP adress. The onion id has 80bit, hence, it would not fit into an 
IPv4 address but IPv6 has enough bits to do this.

Of course, an all-in-one package would be nice and maybe we will have 
something like that some days but IMO OnionCat currently is too maiden for 
such a project.

Well, basically that's no technical reason.
It's because the purpose of TOR is not to support people in illegally 
downloading/sharing stuff thereby eating up all the bandwith of the network. 
TOR is for protecting people's rights and privacy.
But I'm sure those issues were discussed many times on this list ;)
