Well, I don't do P2P myself so much, but from what I know of it, this sounds
like a pretty cool thing, if it gets off the ground and gets a lot of users.

If we can get individually-signed .debs, you won't even need to worry so
much about getting the torrent files off a trusted mirror...

At any rate, it looks good, and I, for one, hope to see a lot more about it
in the future.
