Um, is there an easy algorithm for linking up to a volatile node cloud
of low address space density? If you've linked up before, you can have
memory traces of a part of the cloud, which could come bundled with the
tarball. Apart from that, all you can do is do a random scan of the
neighbourhood, and a few random addresses in increasing distances, right?

Being right as in centralized and sequential? Booleshit. The world is
distributed, asynchronous and robust. Hares pursued by foxes rarely suffer
a privilege violation and go catatonic, and they don't move in time-sliced
increments. The very antithesis of Comp. Sci. These people should stop smoking
crack, and come out of their ivory towers, to solve real world problems.
