Torrents and privacy

Bit Torrent seems to be the new way to distribute large files. It's currently used for media and large distributions. It's quite handy. I use azureus. Now the thing I don't understand is why aren't all torrents protected via SSL? Sure everyone in the swarm will know what is being transfered in your swarm but the key is that if someone isn't in your swarm, they won't know what you're looking at. This is very useful when there are zillions of swarms. The only way to know what a swarm is d/l ing is to join every swarm.
