Firstly, thanks much for the offers of b/w - it will make a big difference.

Also, it would be super useful if someone could do a quick test and 
perhaps compare a few of the s/w options out there. We have rtorrent and 
bittorrent-ncurses that we use within .centos.org at the moment; 
bittorrent itself is quite cpu intensive once you cross a hundred 
clients, otoh I've seen rtorrent get to between 350 - 400 links on the 
same machine, but i am sure there is still room for improvement there. 
no idea how deluge or transmission fare in this regard.
