Ok, so inter-segment communication occurs using only between the
computers listed first in each segment... or did I read this wrong?
If I'm right, how is failure handled in this case? Thank you
for explaining the NAT hack. I can see that I have _alot_ to
learn about networking practicalities. ;)

The specification for YAML is at http://yaml.org/spec as for which
services, I'm mostly focusing on my pet application at this time.
It seems that YAML+SPREAD should be a nice match. We have a minimal
python binding, a fairly good Perl binding, and a Java binding in the
cooker. This should allow for language/platform independent
"structured" messages to be packed/unpacked into native data
structures, with SPREAD they can now move objects between processes
and replicate them. It's quite neat... when I have something working
I'll send out a notification (but it may be a while as I'm trying
to launch a company which sucks most of my "free" time *sigh*). I
hope this is a good response to your question.
Thank you so much Jonathan.
