[Sugar-devel] Thoughts on Collab

The current system is confusing.  It limits your discovery of peers - 
the neighbourhood view ether shows buddies from the school server OR 
buddies from avahi (local network)

In the new system, we will avoid this limitation.  You will be able to 
see buddies on the schoolserver and avhai at the same time.  It will 
not make a difference from a user perspective.

If this makes the local network collaboration more widely used, I'm 
excited about that.  Obviously, direct local communication has less 
latency than using a server.  Less latency is a better user experience!
