        What do you mean by this ? . A Java plugin to cscc ?

        I would like to clarify a few doubts here. What is the 
actual specifications of the file-sharing app.

        - should it be P2P ?
        - anonymity vs Identity ?
       +---Gnutella   |
       `---Freenet    `----uServ
        - locator specified like uServ ?
                `---eg the ``gopal.<somewhere>.<something>'' locator
        - name searchable like Gnutella/Freenet ?
                `---eg look for a shared file with name ``GNU''
        - How content replication should take place 
                +-- Freenet & uServ does this automagically
        |     |         `-- ?
        |     `--cache mode replication
                `- Gnutella does not have this feature
        - Reliability of Service
        |   ``GOOD''
    - Who provides the first static peer ?
    - What happens to the app if uServ is GPL'd ? ;)
    In the end I would like to mention that I myself am confused about 
the features needed. The above ``diagram'' was a hash of ideas about how
the existing ideas in file-sharing & a bit of my own. As far as I could 
see we need a fork of Freenet code excluding the anonymity part.

 The difference between insanity and genius is only measured by success
