It would be nice if the originating webpage could be retrieved.  I noticed that piratebay uses a comments tag to indicate this:

<rss xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" version="2.0">
<channel>
<title>The Pirate Bay - HD - TV shows</title>
<link>http://thepiratebay.se</link>

Perhaps there could be a way of extracting this info?  Maybe make it generic enough so that it could be customized to each torrent site?

Once done, all one would have to do is right click on the line in the Transfers tab and select Go To Originating URL.  This would be populated as well when you add a torrent via the Search tab.  And if no originating URL is available change the Go To Originating URL menu option to a grayed out No Originating URL Available.

Magnet data does NOT come from a single URL, the metadata comes from other peers in the swarm.

The magnet LINK is scraped from the RSS feed where the originating URL (meaning where the originating website that is generating the RSS feed) can also be scraped from.

So why would that  be necessary or even useful??

You already have that information in the feed reader, otherwise you are not going to get the feed data anyway.
