It seems that there is a licensing issue preventing Spring Lobby from being released on Ubuntu or Debian with torrent functionality enabled, but as end users we can compile our own binary and regain the functionality...
first make sure you have latest spring from ppa (this will also make sure you have necessary libraries to run the game:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:spring/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install spring springlobby
then get the development files needed to compile Spring Lobby with torrent support
oddly enough apt still downloads 1.39 lobby I checked that the ppa was added and enabled and I see the update on the launchpad website, but no luck on upgrading... anyone else have better results? --nvm I see now that its still being built...

@freelikegnu, I intent to eventually circumvent a lot of the evo issues on linux by using weblobby once downloads via lobby in it work (IE when someone adds prdownloader to the package or whatever).
Afaic, the evo project on launchpad will remain as long as koshi feels like maintaining it, but unfortunately, the way we have done it simply isn't very good imo (even though from a professionalism standpoint, It's as good as it's gonna get without a proper spring portable), and at this point, we would be better off with taking an alternate (albiet, not as nice) route.
Linux is a continual thorn in my side. One which I would like to see removed.
