Use a path in the filename when adding from a URL

I am running deluged as a service as a NON-root user. Problem is when I attempt to use the Android App, Transdroid as a client I get a permissions error when attempting to download the torrent file.

It looks like add_torrent_url in is just using the filename of the torrent to save the file. This is a problem when running as a non-root service because deluge attempts to save this file in the root dir '/' which only has root permissions. It would help to specify a path along with the filename where I can change the permissions, like in the .config directory or even /tmp.

Workaround is to run the daemon as a root user but that is undesirable. Its also not fun to see a bunch of torrent files collecting in the root dir '/'.

Simply point deluged config directory to a non-root directory with the -c switch.
