Heh heh. Simplicity is funny. I believe that Brandon Wiley prefers Chord over
Pastry because of its simplicity. ;-)
I prefer Pastry-or-Kademlia over Chord because of the free choice and, to a
lesser extent, because of the symmetric metric.
I prefer Kademlia over Pastry because of the simplicity of exposition and
argument in the original Kademlia paper. Also Kademlia has a simplification
over Pastry (no "leaf sets"), but I suspect that this simplification might come
with a cost in reduced robustness.

Wow! I need to read about Coral now. I haven't read the iptps03 proceedings
yet, so I am obviously behind the times now.
The Coral page says it will do primarily Kademlia, and also Chord.
