I'd be quite happy to drop the PERL version and just use C for the network-layer-peer instead (other lang-bindings can floww in their own time), it allows us to cut down the low-level dependencies a lot. The development road-map for achieving Migration Day only involves a minimal amount of work on the current PERL layer ( or peerd), since all the interface work is being done from a "hard-wired" nodal structure built into --Nad 11:09, 19 Jun 2006 (NZST)

Exactly: There's too many chickens and too many eggs! To have something that works without many and complex dependancies it seems c is the way to go. Hardwiring is only realy necessary where the language or our current enviorment does not support self-containment. With c the self-containment is always available because of the low-level data structures used. --Rob 13:29, 19 Jun 2006 (NZST)
