Yes, that does make it difficult. I'm not a bittorrent expert. But I'd 
assume to change the local ports used you'd have to be talking to a 
server that is also the same, no? Any bittorrenters out there?

What would be interesting is a packet dump using a set of ports outside 
the defined range. And also one going through a proxy server, as the 
references in the protocol imply is possible with some work.

Yes, thanks for reminding me. :)
