[rc5] More ideas for v3

I imagined multiple project service points (like D.N) where project
lists were mirrored and information for linking up to the proxy
network for that project. Then the conversations would be similar to
what you specified but the "server" would differ for project list
query than for project block query.
I also imagined the ability to slide sliders by the projects I wanted
so my client could hit the project service proxy networks so as to
match my interest settings. Right now, my settings would be about
~40% RC5-64 and ~%60% Golomb Rulers (as I am running both clients and
don't have a Win3.x client yet).
I'd expect the client to detect the absence of a native core on
startup and only throw a dialog asking if the native core should be
downloaded then (while continuing multithreadedly in the background
(in case the power sank overnight and the process was restarted))
signature and source information would go there.
Source organization, program sources, and homepage information should
be displayed while thumbing through the projects lists (with links)
and not during the client conversations.
In effect, every couple of days, the user runs the project manager and
connects to a central project site mirror to get the current list and
select preferences. On each restart, the client should check for
native cores and ask if the user would like them downloaded (in a
non-modal way). At that point, the client is talking to both the
project proxies and to the meta-project mirrors. Then for almost all
other transactions, the client should not need a human nnd should only
communicate with the project proxies previously specified.
I don't have a problem with your conversation models. I'm concerned
about data partitioning and the intended time-scales of user

There seem to be several basic questions raging about v3 (directly, rather
then specific projects that might be implemented).
1) How projects will be chosen. (To be chugged on any specific machine)
2) How projects will be added to the list of distibuted.net possible
3) What architecture we will use to suport this.
