     There's also overnet as well as mldonkey. However, the problem  
is that many non-standard clients are seen as bad clients by servers  
and I assume the same applies for trackers, so I would assume that if  
there isn't anything being done for the trackers yet, there may be  
something done in the future to prevent them from using the tracker  
since they don't follow the prescribed rules for connecting/downloading.
