An even better solution could be the use of metalinks. (www.metalinker.org) It uses an XML file that contains information about the file, publisher, hashes, and so on. It supports multiple download resources, currently HTTP, FTP, Magnetlinks, ed2k links und Bittorrent are supported. With a client supporting Metalink, it is possible to load a file from all the different resources in parallel.
