The software is not a torrent client, only a "search interface" that
comes in html or command line output. Output itself is not rendered
using any rendering enginge but string addition (str.__add__). I
haven't exactly figured out what it actually does just yet, but it's
not what you've been looking for.

Regarding torrent clients, I'm actually pretty happy with
extra/transmission-cli's transmission-daemon.
