Feature Request: allow state without tracker activity (ie stopped, or paused without scrape)

Description

Currently it is impossible to have torrents without tracker connectivity. This feature request is about a state where paused (or stopped) torrents don't have any tracker connectivity at all.

A common use case is a tracker which doesn't allow new transmission releases yet, and therefore the torrents on the tracker are set to paused (until the tracker allows transmission-version as a client). Currently transmission doesn't announce in paused mode, but does scrape. So the logfile is spammed with 'transmission error: Client not allowed' every few minutes. The only available solution is to completely remove the torrent from transmission.

Options are:

  1. make it optional to scrape on paused torrents
  1. introduce 'stop' to completely shut up torrents (and discard half downloaded chunks etc)

Please read the ticket to the end before closing it. It's not an 'either or'-question but to find a solution which satisfies both interests.

Thanks.
