I haven't used Bittorrent in a while.  In the past, I would fire up a
screen session, give one of the bittorrent clients a list of URLs (or
a folder with .torrent files), and then disconnect form the screen
session, letting the BT client download all the ISOs at the same time.
 I don't recall the exact name of the client, but it was something
like btlaunchmany or btheadless.

Any recommendations on how to download multiple ISOs using a
bittorrent client that can be run in a screen session?
