Note that its currently submodule for existing CaDownloader but two parts are separate. I just used CaDownloader as a base because it has prepared infrastructure with self-updates etc..

Yeah no big problem with that :)
But maps were easier because lobby advertises map hash but not mod hash..

Also note that due to technology used it takes about 15-30s to start download and discover map for your game.
This is to save some network traffic and system resources.. downloader is not seeding all maps but only those requested by others.

both map & mod hashes are broadcasted:

hashcode is the mod hash

Can I keep this running in the background to donate bandwidth?

Oh also, pretty soon I will be getting a dreamhost, can you set it up as a seeder?

Not to just be used primarily, but just to provide like maybe 50 kbps so that it just helps out, preferably with less dependence on it the more seeders there are.

Is this possible?

Sure Foreboding .. I run mine to donate traffic too :)

And as for seeding torrents - you can basically run any torrent client with them to seed so no problem here - you can use dreamhost :)

BrainDamage - ok, thats great .. Right now some paths are hardcoded (to maps) but thats it should be trivial to add capability to all mods.
