when you create a torrent, add it automatically

Description

I've had a hard time sharing some things through Transmission because I didn't know I had to manually add it afterwards, and set the original location as the destination.

I suggest that, when you create a torrent, this is done automatically so you're left with a working share in Transmission, and you just have to upload it to the tracker.

This should happen even if you've told transmission NOT to ask you where your downloads go. That is, even if everything you download goes to a specific folder, created torrents shouldn't set their destination to that folder (since that would result in the torrent having a 0% and a confused user like myself) but to the original folder of the shared files (because that would result in the torrent having a 100% and a satisfied user).

Most (all?) private trackers put a watermark in their .torrent files, so the .torrent that the end user creates is not the one that he's going to be using anyway. Auto-adding it, and then forcing him to remove it, would IMO be even more confusing than what we have now.

What about a different method for private and public trackers? I've never uploaded to a private tracker, but isn't the "private for this tracker" checkbox for that?

Maybe torrents could be auto-added for public trackers, but not for private ones?

I've just noticed that the mac client seems to have this feature, in the form of a checkbox that asks you "open when created?"

Having a similar checkbox should be more than enough.
