I received this off-list and thought I would share.  Looks like Transmission has a daemon and is available in EPEL (although it has been orphaned at this time on a rather old version)

You might want to check out transmissionbt. It is essentially a daemon,
has a web-interface, has remote-clients for GUI and CLI etc. It works
flawless here, does IPv6 (with a small tweak it works fine; bugticket is
in the queue) and handled lots of files/quite some load quite easily for
us so far.
