I don't necessarily require it to be closed source, just that the license is 
closed source friendly, the most common of these for open source is the BSD 
license. Azureus isn't an option because it is GPL'd, which prevents closed 
source use, but on the plus side it is used by Aelitis as their calling 
card. I guess I should've been more particular in that what I am looking for 
is an API to be called, those of you that look at the Auzureus code will see 
the Aelitis code linked in, I'm basically looking for the equivalent, and 
looking for more options than Aelitis.
