looking for a text mode torrent client, simultaneous torrents

Hey everyone,
I'm looking for a text mode torrent client, like Azureus or Bittorrent or any other popular graphical client, but to be running in a console environment. Sort of like in Debian distro you have Synaptic graphical package manager, or a pseudo graphical text mode Aptitude package manager. Both accomplish the same task and both are convenient. There are text mode web browsers, like Lynx, there are text mode chat programs, such as gaim-text/finch. I would like to find such torrent client alternative.
There is a python command line Bittorrent client, it has no controls and does not support multiple simultaneous torrents, unless you run parallel instances. Such client is no suitable for me.
Does anyone know of such pseudo graphical(text mode) client?
Thanks in advance.
