There is no problem with DO between different hosts.

Different GNUstep versions will cause problems since we have recently had a 
major rewrite
of the underlying transport, and it's now quite different (and incompatible) to 
earlier
versions.  Hopefully this should now be stable however, since the current 
version supports
class version information in the encoded objects, so from now on (as long as 
there are no
remaining cases where private subclasses get encoded instead of their abstract 
superclasses)
newer versions should be able to read data sent by older versions.

The plan is to release a 1.0 version of the base library early next year 
(perhaps end of january)
and future versions will aim to retain backward compatibility with that.

Different CPUs should not be a problem - the code is written to use an 
archiving format consistent
across machines with different word sizes and byte orders.  However, this is 
not well tested.
