torrent matching by wildmat and/or regex matching on the torrent name

Referring to numbers is not exactly a human way to refer to things, though it is precise when a GUI isn't available.

However, one thing I'd like to see that might be 'not too difficult' for the utility is the ability to specify one or more torrents by string.

If a string matches a torrent, it would include it in the list of torrent to operate on, whether it matches 1 or 10 torrents.

I have plenty of torrents that contain some unique word. Of course it could be made even more powerful by linking a regex engine into the remote client to do use regular expression ... "suse.*11\.2", though 11.2 would probably be unique in that case.

Regex aside, just the simple text would handle 99% of my simple addressing cases.

Now that people know about the daemon, they might start using it more.

I have to use it as an adjunct to the Windows remote client, as it is missing the flexibility of the provided by by the command line remote-client.

For searching I'd have it search the torrent title.
