(As an example of one of ‘more legal uses’ mentioned in the answer, Facebook utilizes bittorrent to deploy their site, 1GB binary, to thousands of production servers. How unfortunate that a technology is discarded mostly because of one of its uses.)

comment How to store SSH keys?
I guess, having encrypted ~/.ssh hanging around on a usb stick would save from the need to generate and upload new key in case of the hardware failure. However, since there're very few servers that I use SSH keys to access (and very few machines I connect from), generating new keys won't cause much overhead.

Thanks, that clears things up a lot. Really, losing private SSH key doesn't look like an issue, since for all services I'm using there always seems to be another way to access a service to upload a new one.
