Ok, understood.  Do you think the implementation of server-client
support would be relatively straightforward once server-server is in

I am interested, and depending on how things go, I do think this
feature would help the design of the system.  I'm pretty sure I won't

else from the community to take it over, or for us to find someone
which would be able to contribute more directly.
