Description

I think that this is a great function, but something I miss is the possibility to change what timeunits it follows. Currently most of my torrents I want stopped if they have been inactive for over a week, which feels like a pretty good timelimit for a pretty slow tracker. However currently if you want torrents to stop after one day of inactivity you have to calculate (1440 is not a number you usually have in your head) and set the counter to a multiply of that for days. However as the counter maximizes on 9999 there is also a limit on how high you can set this.

Because of this I suggest the possibility to choose the timeunits used here, and I propose:

Minutes

Hours

Days

Weeks

That should be enough, as I know some trackers that want you to seed at least a month (which is currently not possible to set), and that a month and even a year is still easily created with weeks, so a higher timeunit I see no need for.

I would like this for at least both the gtk-gui and the daemon/remote.

IMO this feature is getting into rarely-used territory and would be better off as a script than as part of Transmission proper.

Mac Client now accepts a 5 digit inactivity period in minutes. 99999 min. or 2.3 months.

As does the GTK+ client... but I can't imagine more than a handful of people wanting to specify (say) seed until idle for 12 weeks. Specifying anything more than minutes in the GUI is overkill.

Seeding for N weeks could still be accomplished through a script that talks to transmission via RPC, but it doesn't belong as a supported feature.
