hmm, good point.
but we just implemented a store-and-forward network which copies the
traffic at every hop, and those along the way were merely network feeds
for the user who's last in the chain to mirror for his personal use. We
just happened to have lots of disk space lying around.. i happened to be
upgrading my store-and-forward node because of unusually high 'network'
seriously though, it is a good point. i suggest we certainly dont make it
very public if we mirror it. maybe somebody closer to the Hpaq could
probe to see what they say about mirroring?
