cant do that - since people will end up installing the code via
torrents, hit mirrorlist that returns null, and complain.

worse - they start hitting partially updated mirrors and find yum
complain about things - while the same mirrors are trying to get the
bits out to other mirrors.

realistically: the .torrents should only show up with the isos on
mirrors - people can then opt to use the torrents and take some load off
the mirrors
