I wonder whether it would be beneficial for source-based linux
distributions. In that case, the packages become just a build script
and a hash. And every computer running that distribution is a seed for
whatever software they have installed. If Arch and Gentoo worked like
that, they'd probably not be any seedless source torrents.
