I mean P2P as in using a DHT (distributed hash table) for its storage
layer so that it can run in a network composed only of the client users
with no web-server, the same way that the file-sharing programs such as
azzureus and aMule work. We can develop a basic wiki/blog in this way,
but would prefer a mature CMS like Plone.
