[Spread-users] Spread implementation and C API

I had some queries about the spread in general and spread C API in general.

1. How does the receive API call block? Does it busy wait or does it
go to sleep and wakes up when there is a message in the message box?
2. When SPREAD is used in different machines connected to the
internet, how does the message passing happen over the internet? (How
does the networking happen and does it happen between the local
daemons running on the different machines connected to spread?)
