[Bug 493429] [NEW] Merge trackers from multiple torrent files

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: transmission

Transmission 1.75 (9117)

A nice feature of uTorrent (and possibly other clients) is that when a
.torrent file is added for which a duplicate is already being
downloaded, instead of rejecting the new file entirely it offers to
merge the lists of trackers.  This is beneficial when the same data has
been shared to multiple trackers, each with its own set of peers.
Transmission currently throws the error message "Couldn't add duplicate
torrent" and rejects the new .torrent file.

** Affects: transmission (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: New

** Description changed:
