A few obstacles here:

  • I2PSocketEepGet doesn't support outproxy now. We could use the HTTP proxy tunnels instead. Or add the code. Or do proxy stuff in snark. Either way it would require additional config.
  • Our current default outproxy is unreliable
  • I don't know if the op for our current outproxy would be in favor
  • webseeds in clearnet torrents seem to be very rare, for obvious reasons? If you know of torrent sources where webseeds are common and this feature could be useful, let us know

so, not so easy and use case doesn't appear to be that common
