Nice, in fact very nice. Getting this off facebook's and on to
something more like opensocial and you really have something that
could be used to manage white lists and the sort.

It would also be interesting to expand this out to include mngmt of
privileged access to things like, for instance, play lists and content
creation on nodes.

Of course without strong keys is all flappy security bu for some uses
that could be enough.

ACL vis social netowrking....I like this thought...sort of just
another vector for trusted peers bu one that seems to have some legs.
Still needs some auth and keydancing added in though.
