I found this particular project to be too immature to be useful (also
OpenDj, mentioned that day on slashdot as an alternative). I also don't
think that this approach is the best way to go except for streams which
need to be both live and multicast, which is a narrow market. Even with
semi-live streams you can just lag the stream by 5 minutes, break it
into series of 1-minute files, and then swarm-download them in
sucession, stitching them back into a stream on the client side.
