I'll quickly throw out two things that I should have included in previous
-- naming - we need to use some distributed key-value lookup system
such as Chord, which is definately more complex that having
a static topology for overlay network, so we can build routing
tables by hand.
-- PKI - Freedom goes into some depth about key maintenance and
rotation. This probably will be quite a headache.
