I agree.  On a somewhat related note, I have a question and a 
resulting suggestion.  On the network at work and at home (and at 
school as soon as I get linux running there), I have one machine with 
dial-up access and the rest of the machines on the network with 
unregistered IP addresses or IPX addresses which cannot communicate 
direstly with the internet.  Do the personal proxies have the ability 
to use dynamically assigned IP addresses?  If so, I'd like a pointer 
to how to set this up.  If not, I'd like to see the the new clients 
and proxies speak IPX and the proxies support dynamic IP addresses.  
That way, one machine could dial up, get blocks and allocate them 
offline (from the internet) to the other machines.
