No.  We will probably host a new server if needed.  That will be 
discussed as the implementation is done.

No.  We are experimenting with writing a new system.  Backwards 
compatibility is *not* the aim - the aim is to remove the technical 
debut and make a system that is better for users.

It will also probably *not* be part of 0.110.  We haven't even written 
a working prototype yet.

> Does it support ad hoc (the current mesh technique).

Ad hoc just creates wifi networks right?  This is targeting 
collaboration over lan wifi networks.  Again - the code has not been 
written yet.

Also, didn't you say that ad hoc is too unreliable for the real world?
