Am looking into couple of solutions to separate the storage/lookup system - all using DHT, possibly a set of primitives on top of Chord. Couple of quick questions:
	a)	Is this still a project to work on ? Who else is working on this ?
	b)	How many servers and how many entries would normally be there ? Would help if I have some order of magnitude - back of the envelope type calculations
	c)	What kind of redundancy could we plan on ? Say 3 distinct copies of entries ?
	d)	How esoteric do we want this to be ? Is it Ok to take time to rebalance ?
