I don't use bittorrent all that much. What do people think about these
two frontends? Are there other interesting ones?

I kept meaning to package gnome-bt for Extras, and kept forgetting.
So that would be my preference. :)

One issue with gnome-bt is that it depends on the bittorrent package,
and the bittorrent package already includes the default gui app, so
unless you do some creative packaging you would get two bittorrent UIs
with gnome-bt as the default.

The current Extras bittorent package already splits the GUI into a
sub-package called "bittorrent-gui", so as long as gnome-bt only requires
what is contained in "bittorrent", it should work out fine.

Probably not actually. Extras has bittorrent 4.2.0 and gnome-bt doesn't work with anything newer than 3.4.2; at least not last time I tried it.
