I wouldn't expect anyone to give money until someone (me?) decides to
move forward with the project. As of right now it looks like we have
about $1k pledged in small increments, so it definitelt looks like there
is interest. If some of the "heavy hitters" come in, this project might
take off sooner rather than later.

I can't control this. that would be up to Derrick or someone else at
CMU. I can do whatever I want with the HTTP server at my location, if
somebody can point me at some HTML/PHP/Java/Perl/etc code which I cxan
put in place quickly.

I think this would cause performance to suffer greatly. I think what we
want is "lazy" replication, where the client gets instant results from
the machine its connected to, and the replication is done in the
background. I believe this is what David's implementation does.
Question: Are people looking at this as both redundancy and
performance, or just redundance?
