True, I don't know how bittorrent's upgrading currently works, but
with moving I ment new package installs. As long as there is only
bittorrent and maybe a couple more packages polluting /srv we can have
package-local workarounds phasing the direct usage under /srv out.

For bittorrent this means that on new installs it picks the non-srv
location and on upgrades it copies over the bittorent data
location from the previous setup (probably needs to happen in %pre
before the config files are overwritten). Or maybe bittorrent needs
another approach, just giving the idea.
