Package: ktorrent
Version: 3.2.1+dfsg.1-1
Severity: wishlist


Ktorrent has a cute systemtray icon that has a really cool function.  One can hover their mouse pointer over the icon and it will give immediate upload and download statistics for the currently downloading torrents.

The only trouble with this is that it only gives you one set of stats at the time when the mouse pointer hovered over it.  What would be really, really, cool if the statistics dynamically updated to show realtime statistics.

Knemo the network monitor has similar functionality and it is highly, highly useful in practice.
