Hi everybody,

i'm watching this thread about bittorrent and mono and i have some

- why implement bittorrent ni mini webserver ??? performance ??? 
with asp.net it would be more flexible, because anyone could customize

- will it be implemented as a .dll so anyone at any plataform (mono or
ms .net) could use that ???

- to implement it we will have to implement many network components, so
why don't we implement separate network components that extends .net
framework ???
with this we can implement extensions easily like: snmp, ssh, ftp,
telnet, etc. or implement some applications that use these extensions
like: emule client, email clients (pop, imap, smtp, etc), nntp client,
nfs client, smb client, ntp client or any kind of application server
that uses network.
