Howto create a torrent from the terminal?

Anyone know of any software that can create torrents from the terminal? I've got no issues doing it from one of the many GUI tools, but I need a way to do it from the terminal so I can write a script to make them.

I've found a number of tools that claim to be able to do it. Some of them didn't work at all, others only partially worked, possibly due to my not understanding what arguments to pass to the console program; the documentation on all of them has been sketchy at best.
