Using the torrent protocol in package manager.
I believe talk about the benefits of the torrent protocol is not necessary.
Integrating the torrent in yast (or directly in libzypp), will also reduce the bandwidth consumption of servers, improving the speed of many users.It would be possible to use all of the servers contained in metalink and add them as seed.
I made a small little test with this package using utorrent: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/OpenOffice.org:/STABLE/openSUSE_11.3/i586/OpenOffice_org-libs-gui-devel-22.214.171.124-1.1.i586.rpm
The improved speed of 45kbps to 350kbps, adding the mirros of metalink as seed. You might not need P2P, only the servers contained in metalink may be enough.
There is a similar project that does something like: http://burnbit.com/
But an integrated repository for openSUSE would be ideal.

To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
