messages in XML. Control messages used to set up connections and channels
are in XML, but I doubt that's even visible to the programmer.
Also in response to Dan, I wasn't really talking about BXXP in my
message; Invisible Worlds also has a P2P message routing system built on
top of BXXP; they say it's for IM but that's a front. If it goes through
the IETF, then anyone who uses a different P2P routing protocol will
likely be accused of not supporting standards...
