Description

In Details->Options Peer connections, instead of just

Maximum peers: ___

why not split it into

Maximum download peers: ___
Maximum upload peers:   ___

like you do for speed, directly above it. Also do this in Preferences.

I bet this finer control would allow the user to further optimize his connection.

Indeed, you can even have a connector bar between them like I've seen in the gimp program, which changes one when the other is changed, unless the user unclicks the bar to enable independent changing.

This fine of control is not going to happen. Besides being bloat, how does one distinguish between seeders and leechers that have data you do not? Implementing such a feature would undoubtedly result in worst speeds, and connecting only to seeders is harmful for the swarm.

I realize this ticket's already been closed, but I wanted to reassert the reasons livings124 gave above. This would almost certainly result in worse speeds.
