Well, allpeers, while not being bad per se, didn't live up to my expectations. In all fairness, after all this buildup it would have been nigh on impossible to meet my expectations. Anything short of printing out pure Au would have failed. On the bright side however, Psyc has released psychzilla (wiki), which comes oh so close to my dream of a distributed peer-to-peer social network with chat, mail, homepages and filesharing. I really thought that I was going to have to embed torrent binaries in rss pages, broadcast them with feedtree, and pull it all together with a Firefox extension, a torrent extension and jabberzilla or mozchat(now called mango). Whew. Now you see why that wasn't such a good idea. more later.
