Description

Other torrent clients such as uTorrent allow users to choose "not to create sub-folders" so that only the files in a torrent are saved in the designated locations without necessarily creating the root folder. Transmission currently only supports renaming files and the root folder but there is no way to avoid creating the root folder.

For example, if a torrent contains two files: file_A, file_B under the root folder my_torrent:

my_torrent/file_A
my_torrent/file_B

and I save it under /tv_show/season_1,

the final result would be:

/tv_show/season_1/my_torrent/file_A
/tv_show/season_1/my_torrent/file_B

while what I really want to achieve is:

/tv_show/season_1/file_A
/tv_show/season_1/file_B

Of course, users can circumvent that by renaming the root folder as the name of the existing parent folder of the designated location, in this case, season_1. Preferably, I hope that users can simply choose whether or not they want to create the root folder in the torrent open dialogue window (along with "trash the torrent once opened" and "start right away").
