Idea for peer-updating Debian/Ubuntu systems
Maybe someday I can setup a tool to do half of this for me in a peer-to-peer app: it'd be nice to run something that searched all local systems via IPv6 fe80 addresses to see if anyone has the latest set of debs & pull their copy; most of the sites I support use T1 or DSL connections, so downloading is a pain.
