When I switched to my FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE amd64 machine, I didn't really 
want to go through the hassle of getting Java to work nicely. So I 
searched around the ports for another one, and /usr/ports/net/rtorrent 
works for me.

Yes, it is text based but it supports queues and you can screen it. It's 
also written in C++ so there isn't a need for Python.
