I noticed that rtorrent is still banned from some trackers due to that
"misbehavior" thing, and it's really annoying. There just simply isn't
any other good torrent client for *nix that would work as good as

So, my idea would be to define some common torrent client's user-agent
(is it even called user-agent in this protocol? =)) in rtorrent's
config to bypass the bans.

Any thoughts?
