> Ryan, How do you propose to choose nodes "randomly" ?

Well, I didn't write that, but I assumed it meant something like

	sin.sin_addr = my_favourite_32bit_rng();

The v4 Internet is getting populated enough that that is becoming a
sane technique for doing that kind of statistical work (well, sane from
a statistical POV; it's often not so hot from an abuse POV).
