:Interesting idea.  It might even be better to setup a standardized mirroring 
:configuration where the mirrors are setup to be publically accessible, and 
:pull the data from their sources (Matt's network for cvs and iso-images, 
:joerg's for packages, corecode's for snapshots, etc.)
:status: unread -> chatting
    I have this insane idea for a massively redundant 'clustered' storage
    system, using crypto to sign the data blocks (chained from the 'root'
    which would be a single domain whos crypto key is looked up via DNS)
    Call me crazy....
