Opera's bitTorrent client

While I usually love all the features Opera includes in its releases, the bitTorrent client included just blows my..... well, you can imagine.
Some will say simplicity is bliss, but damn it man, not a single option on the bitTorrent client??

I guess even with that THING included, Opera will still be my browser. I will just keep using uTorrent for my torrents, thanks very much...

Now return to World Cup mode and enjoy some beautiful FOOTBALL :-) (you know, the one that you play with your FOOT and a BALL)

Hmm, a little off topic, but I just had to say:
It is believed that football is called football because it is played on foot, instead of on a horse. ;)

On topic; Opera 9 looks like a really good release, and the BT-client is for the people who don't need a fancy one. Do you have any special options for normal downloading?
