        The first thing we planned for DotGNU was a P2P service registry,
based on the FreeNet idea...... which meant a fork of FreeNet which
gives us an enormous existing network. With a heirarchical naming
system, we could literally use the FreeNet for this purpose. 

        But , AFAIK almost all universities & colleges (and corporate
offices) block FreeNet nodes. Morover there is *no* controlling 
authority for freenet. So it does not prevent M$ from mirroring
"gnu_savannah_login.gnu" to ""; .

        So will a distributed LDAP (model) server do ?. With multiple 
top levels ,ie your host has settings for each TLD ie "gnu.*" redirects
to an IP, "perl.*"...........we may even imitate the newsgroup
style .....(comp.* style) and make data into standard DTD's.

        Anyway, I don't have much expertise in network
it's out of bounds for me anyway.....

 The difference between insanity and genius is only measured by success
