single application might be feasible since the whole thing appears to be

connections are point-to-point and bi-directional.
I think the other camp of thinking is to explicitly assume that the
network is heavily NAT'd and difficult to route in, and that application
developers should explicitly deal with the problem via routing
For the time-being at least, I'm going to resist this mindset and push
towards abstractions that allow transparent end-to-end communications.
