Subject: aria2c(1) should allow the user to override the "private" flag
Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2013 22:12:43 +0000
Package: aria2
Version: 1.15.1-1
Severity: wishlist

	Currently, the aria2c(1) manual page reads:

--cut: aria2c(1) --
   BitTorrent Specific Options

	--bt-enable-lpd[=true|false]
		Enable Local Peer Discovery.  If a private flag is set
		in a torrent, aria2 doesn't use this feature for that
		download even if true is given.  Default: false

…

	--enable-dht[=true|false]
		Enable IPv4 DHT functionality.  If a private flag is set
		in a torrent, aria2 doesn't use DHT for that download
		even if true is given.  Default: true

	--enable-dht6[=true|false]
		Enable IPv6 DHT functionality.  If a private flag is set
		in a torrent, aria2 doesn't use DHT for that download
		even if true is given.  Use --dht-listen-port option to
		specify port number to listen on.  See also
		--dht-listen-addr6 option.

	--enable-peer-exchange[=true|false]
		Enable Peer Exchange extension.  If a private flag is
		set in a torrent, this feature is disabled for that
		download even if true is given.  Default: true
--cut: aria2c(1) --

	Naturally, as the mission of Free Software is to empower (and
	/not/ to restrict) its users, aria2c (and every other Free
	Software BitTorrent implementation) should provide, and clearly
	document, a way for the user to override such a “private” flag.
