      The difference I had in mind is that Plesh is a network dedicated to
      carrying metadata (even though it can also carry other data), while FASD
      has to cooexist with other uses of Freenet. I was wondering whether that
      focus would let Plesh optimize the topology, and the answer is no.
      Actually, FASD seems to have a more flexible search strategy.

      But I'll leave off with this until I get my real job taken care of and
      read the FASD paper all the way through during the weekend. Pretty
      interesting paper so far...
