Could you please implement a feature to only update announce URLs in torrent files? Like in transmission-edit.
Now it's only possible to create new torrent files with changed announce URLs. And it requires recalculating hashes of all source files which can spend a lot of time on big files.

Thanks.

    1. RHash main goal is to calculate hashes and create/verify hash files.
    2. RHash already supports too many features, which leads to very big man page.
    3. It's not easy to mantain all of these features working after introducing new options/changes.

    I believe this feature shall be implemented in some another program, e.g. in some python script. Also there is already transmission-edit. You can just take it and fork/recompile/package separately.
