Default file caching

I would suggest that some percent of all transfers are cached. The files would be stored encrypted on users harddrives. Clients would REQUIRE that each users dedicates at least 100mb for the file caching (users may increase this). When users download they would not know if they are downloading from a cached source or someone sharing.

This would solve sooooo many problems, increase the network resources, protect the network from attacks, ect.
