Bug Description

Some torrents represent folders containing files (e.g. Fedora or openSUSE installation ISOs). Usually I only want a single file or two from this folder when I download such a torrent, and would rather than Transmission dropped those files straight into the download area, rather than re-creating the folder and putting the files in there. (E.g. downloading the file openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso from the torrent openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso.torrent still creates the directory openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso and places the file in there.)

This request should probably go upstream unless it was fixed there very recently.
