Allow (un)signed updates from torrent link

In order to expedite and enhance testing of un-released developer builds, enabling updates from a static torrent link would be helpful, reducing the load on the server providing the updates. Additionally, updates to plugins using the same mechanism might also be considered.

Haven't had any request from anybody running an update server that they need this to reduce the load.

Also, we don't have any mechanism to get the magnet link from a dev build server. For releases, we get that from the news feed. For dev builds we're just doing a HTTP fetch with a last-modified and looking at the version field at the beginning of the su3. We'd have to have the dev build sites set up their own signed news feed and do a lot of code on the router side to deal with multiple news feeds.

Low priority and not easy.
