It would be nice to keep the name of a partial torrent
download as filename.mp3.part until it downloads 100%.
I use the Unison file synchronizer to keep my i-River
up-to-date and I've set it up to ignore partial files,
but it doesn't work for torrent files.

    it's somehow technical as the bittorrent client needs a fixed path to share
    past the 100 percent frame ..

    .. this would need some interaction with the bittorent py implementation to
    sense .mp3.part to .mp3 change :/ imho not that easy to do in clean
    manner // i guess on a hackish way (rewriting of the torrent file before
    start / on complete and reshare it would) imho bittorrent defines the
    filenames to write to expicit in the torrent file
