Du you have any ideas on how to support bus/broadcast networks in Styx, a la IP multicast? I think this will be a big idea in shared bandwith environments - which will be a big idea. Why watch the new Star Wars sequel alone if every other person in the neighbourhood would like to join you? And the rest could watch an old episode and still you would consume only two videostream's worth of bandwith. A bandwith equal to 10 video streams would probably serve a user base of thousand people fairly well if they can dynamically manage grouping themselves with IP multicast.
