[Libtorrent-devel] Need help creating a event.download.finished script (0.8.6)

I learnt that running it directly from rtorrent can sometimes cause problems.
My solution for transfering files (I actually wrote a custom rutorrent
plugin to manage it all) is to set a custom flag on the file with a 1
if it is to be transferred.
I have a php script that runs every 5 minutes which uses xmlrpc to
check for torrents that have that flag set, and are completed, and
transfer them. After the transfer successfully completes, it changes
the flag to a 0. This allows transfers to be retried if they fails.
In rutorrent, I have a plugin that adds some columns and right click
commands to show and set the transfer status, including setting
multiple locations to transfer it to. I even modified the rutorrent
RSS plugin to let you select certain rss filters to mark for transfer.
It works great.
I can post the code if anyone wants it...could probably use some
cleaning up, but I'm sure someone can at least use it as a base to
