Sometimes I want to download a magnet-torrent only partially. But Transmission currently doesn't let me postpone downloading until the metadata is retrieved and I select which files I want. Instead I have to deselect files when they are already started downloading, this results in many unwanted blocks on my disk and it's not at all trivial to get rid of them later.
So I propose adding a checkbox to GUI for adding magnet transfers, "Don't start downloading after fetching metadata".
When it's checked, Transmission should not start downloading the data until the user triggers it manually. It should only fetch metadata, as usual.
Feature requests not specific to either the Mac OS X or GTK+ versions of Transmission
