bittorrent-curses .... are there any howtos?

i've been using for a long time. recently i upgraded to bittorrent-4.1.6Beta. i tried using bittorrent-curses, succeeded at it.. but some things seem to be missing.
doesn't the curses mode support multiple torrents? i could not figure out any options with the help available. aren't there any key-bindings once we are in curses mode? there seems to be no documenation available for bittorrent-curses.
pls do suggest more curses based BT clients available (if they are better than BitTorrent official).

bittorrent-curses --help

i think the only key binding is ctrl+c to kill it. and unless i'm doing it wrong, it's one torrent per terminal. much better than the gui though, imho, because you get more info on what's happening. i just load up a few terminals and it probably takes even less memory than the gui.
