Of course it is. You're describing how it's implemented now, but that doesn't mean it have to work like that. Or is there something in the standard that prevents the client from treating two torrents with the same infohash as individual torrents? If so please enlighten me.

I don't remember where I saw the change but this is a Libtorrent matter so far I know and having 2 torrents loaded (private tracker) works with libtorrent 1.0.11. Maybe I miss a port of the story here but the below scenario works for me:

- add the torrent from private tracker 01, wait to the en of the download
- add in pause state the torrent from another tracker, point the destination the same file (be very carreful here) and force-recheck+resume

This way I seed for both trackers w/o issue and avoid ratio possible miscalculation (if the second tracker is simply added to the tracker list of the 1st)
