If it doesn't have to be graphical, I would suggest rtorrent.

+1 for rtorrent.
You can even get a third party web UI for it, if needed.

Transmission. Can be used on desktop machines and servers (it comes with its own web interface), but is nonetheless small and low on resources.

I'll expand. There are clients that work with decentralized servers, and spend a time looking into those servers. Ktorrent is one of them, and is a long time stalled before beginning to download. utorrent, begins, with the same torrent and at the same time, at once.

I use rtorrent, with a $HOME/.rtorrent.rc tuned to my upload/download speeds as well for as optimal hashing/checksumming (it originally was for my old OpenBSD laptop but now repurposed for Slackware.) I run it under a tmux session.

This is only true if you have a magnet link for the source, ktorrent will behave like any other torrent client if you only have a torrent link. Transmission does the same.

While not really "tiny", I use deluge. I have it running as a daemon on my file server/seedbox and have a client on all my other computers. Works great.

I'm compiling qbittorrent, but first boost,one of its dependencies. boost has 17MB and will take several hours to compile. I do not think this is a tiny client. It'll take longer than mplayer for the GUI.

transmission-daemon with transgui is a good lightweight solution for decentralised torrents

Boost is already included in Slackware:

Package name boost-1.49.0-i486-2.txz

Release slackware-current

Description boost (Boost C++ Libraries) Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries. The emphasis is on libraries that work well with the C++ Standard Library. One goal is to establish "existing practice" and provide reference implementations so that the Boost libraries are suitable for eventual standardization. http://www.boost.org/

You'll need libtorent-rasterbar package (you can get it from Alien Bob's repo, or to compile it yourself), and I think that's it when we talk about qbittorrent dependencies.
