Hi Jason, I was going to checkout Ktorrent for you, but I always install 
guarddog with k torrent and guarddog is not installable, it depends on 
kdelibs4c2a-4:3.5.10 and kdelibs-data-4:3.5.10, so unless a guarddog 
package is built for trinity I can't install ktorrent for 10.10.

I was able to install guarddog and ktorrent on trinity ubuntu 10.04 LTS 
and I was able to get torrents to start.
