I agree with you the client download limit is usless and annoying.  It's
a problem I've been concerned about for some time.  From what I've been
able to gather from the IRC channel and the main mailing list there is
already no limit associated with the Win95/NT pproxies.  I also got the
following message back from rc5help at distributed.net in regard to the 50
block limit on the BSDI pproxy

"it's been removed, the next (259) release of the proxypers lets clients
download without the 50 block limit."

No word on the next release might be though.  We are anxiously waiting
for it!
