I think many of us dream of such a thing.  :-)

Unfortunately GNUnet hasn’t seen any release since April 2014, which I
find worrying.

It may be worth considering other options such as IPFS and Bittorrent,
even though they obviously have different properties.

This would be could.  I discussed it with tg(x) in November but never
took the time to actually do it.

Note that Rémi, who worked on this for GSoC, posted prototypes for the
publish and substitute code (along with the bindings themselves, which
are available as the ‘guile-gnunet’ package in Guix.)  It’s probably a
good idea to revive them and see how far you can get.

Glad to see more work in this area!
