Remotely coontrollable and resource friendly bittorrent client

Hi all!

I am looking for a remotely controllable bittorent client that is not a resource hog... If it has UPnP and NAT Traversing functions that would be ideal... remote control interface can be of any type... CLI or even PHP... I have read up a bit and have found Torrentflux and Azureus to be candidates but both are pretty resource intensive... Java and Python according to the reviews I read... I know Azureus is a RAM hog by personal experience...

Ideas anybody...

After some research I'm quite happy with MLdonkey. I run it in my 400 MHz headless gateway with 192 MB of RAM. Controllable over web interface, does many networks, Bittorrent incl.
