I meant full as in full featured. Perhaps that is a bit ambiguous, I'll
reword it.

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
transmission project itself [1].

This would also transmission-remote-cli to be updated independently of
the entire transmission package.
