[DotGNU]File sharing app

I have received a respnse from Roberto Bayardo, one of the
people behind IBM's "uServ" file sharing application.  IBM
apparantly sill doesn't know what to do with uServ (productize,
offer as a service, license, or open source / Free Software),
and this is likely to take a couple of months to sort out.

I think we should probably assume that IBM is not likely to
put uServ under GPL, and therefore we should build out own File
sharing app, using Napster, Gnutella and also the uServ paper
(see )
as sources of inspiration.

Any takers?  This is a project for building an application which
has the potential of becoming very popular very quickly.

Greetings, Norbert.
