Blueprint for Zero Configuration Networking
Provide automatic service discovery so that a group of Netbooks running Sahana can find each other without the need for configuration.
We're currently using:
- Python Multicast DNS Service Discovery: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyzeroconf/
Best toolkit to use is probably Apple's Bonjour:

- Java's JINI (now Apache River):
- This would need us to use Java libs via Jython unless we write our own Python libs!
The Open standard, SLP, seems unmaintained:
