Hm. This is a big deal.
One of the key beauties of spread is the way that it
federates multiple remote LAN segments. It is a huge
simplification if local traffic stays local and remote traffic
is replicated only if needed. It would let you use one
configuration and set of servers for a variety of
simultaneous communication strategies.
At the least, private group messages should be optimized.
How hard is this type of optimization, both for private
and for not-private?
Is there a funder out there that would like to engage
Spread Concepts to work on it? About how
much would it cost to fund?
