Bug Description

ctorrent currently limits the .torrent file size to 4MB and fails with the following error on all larger files:

"error, "test.torrent" is really a metainfo file???"

We use ctorrent within our organization to deploy very large VM image files (~70GB) to multiple nodes within the cluster. The 4MB size limitation is too strict for this use-case. The attached patch increases this limit to 16MB (should be applied to ctorrent 1.3.4dnh3.3.2 as found in Ubuntu 14.04).
