Description

Hi,

Some torrents represent folders containing files (e.g. Fedora or openSUSE installation ISOs). Usually I only want a single file or two from this folder when I download such a torrent, and would rather prefer than Transmission dropped those files straight into the download area, rather than re-creating the folder and putting the files in there.

Testcase:

1.- Download openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso from the torrent openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso.torrent 2.- Go to the download area 3.- The openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso exists even when only 1 file is inside of them

I would prefer:

1.- Download openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso from the torrent openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso.torrent 2.- Go to the download area 3.- See the openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso file

This particular wishlist bug was first reported in Ubuntu:

Thanks for the suggestion, but Transmission's not going to get into the task of changing a torrent's file hierarchies.
