I guess it could be included in transmission-cli. I thought
transmission-remote-cli would be better suited to its own package
because it a third-party transmission tool, and not part of the

This would also transmission-remote-cli to be updated independently of
the entire transmission package.
 It is prominently displayed on http://www.transmissionbt.com/ though.
