Yeah, i already know this document. It actually does apply to our project 
but with a much lesser impact since we took some measures to reduce the 
amount of PING and PONG going through the network.
Another problem with gnutella seems to be the shere number of search 
requests a user kicks off, while we produce network traffic rather seldom.
