WASTE. I looked at the WASTE design document and as I suspected the protocol is a piece of junk. The gnutellaism of broadcasting all requests just makes no sense. Since I've already gotten some pushback, let me give a specific example: when you use WASTE to send an IM to another person, under the hood that IM goes to everyone in the group. This is not acceptable behavior for IM software. [Hack the Planet]
