A generic problem is how to get IP addresses for peers. There are a billion
approaches. One of these approaches is consistent hashing. In consistent

uServ has a rule for hashing email addresses to IP addresses instead. Pretty
Nodes can team up to proxy for one another.
Nodes can mirror one another's content.
An interesting thing about buddy services is that they can work either between
