Talk about the stone age.  These days there are many, many clients that
let you intelligently manage your upload rate in the GUI so that it does
not choke off your connection and slow your download.  They also have
queues, scheduling/seeding rules, multiple torrents from a single
interface, and many other things that the mainline client lacks.  You
can use the command line if you really want to, but... Check out
Azureus, ABC, BitTornado, BitComet, TorrentStorm, etc...
