One thing the ruling may mean is that it could be dangerous to release any P2P software that tries to be stealthy. If what is being uploaded/downloaded is not legal, the users will want to hide their activity, but if the use is legal (for example, using BitTorrent to download a Fedora distribution), hiding is counterproductive. Courts might conclude that any feature that has no use to legal, open users implies that you're a bad guy (even if there are valid and legal uses for such features).
