Not everyone wants to seed all the time so splitting up the program into a BT core and BT file manager might be an idea.

The BT core program looks after the online user and search data, sharing this with other clients. This could be always on.

While the BT file manager looks after seeding / leeching through the BT core program. This allows you to participate in the group acting as a super peer and having up to date search data while not having to have a full blown BT client running.
