i think rtorrent is "ok". lightweight, but lacks some advanced
features such as webseeds.

Personally i prefer support for DHT, webseeds, encryption and

i just had a look at transmission, using it with its ncurses interface
seems to be pretty similar to rtorrent, except that it has
more features.

furthermore it
* supports the xdg basedir spec (i hate things that pollute my ~)
* has a socket protocol

but i wonder:
* does it have an event reporting/hooks system? so that i can execute
  scripts/code when a torrent completed, stalled, is added, ...
* does it automatically update its own configuration? i hate it when
  programs do that.
