I agree.  Actually, we'd be VERY interested in one, if it could move
200 to 1200 kilobytes of data in a matter of a few milliseconds... this
is one of the engineering feats I've been trying to accomplish for the
last few months... I've spent a lot of time thinking and prototyping
designs for just such a distributed session server.  Everything I've
come up with is too slow for my requirements, but would be perfectly
fine for the majority of users - who probably have something between
100 bytes and 10k bytes of data per session.
