I'm not sure exactly how this is a peer-to-peer system, since there is
clearly a conceptual (and actual) distinction between clients and
servers.
Moreover, end users don't seem to participate in the overlay network at
all.
Am I mistaken ?
Is it "peer-to-peer" in the same way that Akamai is ?

(apart from that, trying to solve the "RSS is a resource hog" problem is
a good idea ;-))
