With a modification to the Add torrent URL field in I2PSnark, it should be easy to allow I2PSnark to act as a possible handler for torrent and magnet links.

Related to proposal 139

currently stalled, see discussion, including talk of registering handlers

A web handler could possibly POST to the UI. There is nonce protection on the form that would have to be dealt with.

A shell script that acts on the .torrent mime type as defined in proposal 139 would have to copy the torrent file to the i2psnark directory. Snark would pick it up in a minute, or if we implement the directory notification API (I have some old code somewhere to do that) it would be immediate.

Maybe the two cases aren't very related after all…

Required snark changes are in 0.9.45-18.

See http://zzz.i2p/topics/2888 for external stuff required.

Plan is to get it in the installers for 0.9.47.
