Shortform: Multiple-Source

Multi-Source is generally used in peer-to-peer applications where a client can download pieces of a file from more than one source (user) at a time. This may also be called hive downloading but is in fact a different term; hive downloading is simultaneous download and upload to and from multiple sources.
