Don't know if that would make a difference, because either ways, a machine
would send a (polling) signal to all the machines on the network, all of
which are known to it. That is, if there are N machines connected to a
(wifi) telepathy-salut network, each machine would be seeing the other N-1
machines; and each machine would be sending the (polling) signal to each of
the N-1 machines, be it in client-mode or server-mode.

so we are prepared to make it a bit chattier. It's only a

Especially more so, if we would be solving a major use-case :)
