Is this actually possible? The original idea, back at the very
beginning, was the Meatball Servnet: everybody has an equal share of
every file. So any k of the n servers can reconstitute *any* file in
the servnet. Also, any particular bit in the servnet doesn't
necessarily correspond to any particular file.
