That would be great. I looked at protozilla too, but not enough to
understand their code. As you mentioned, having circle-file:blah urls
would make a great publicity to circle.

the hashtable lookup is indeed reasonably fast when the searched
name is not salted (i.e. when the object that is searched for is
this makes me wonder how other DHTs deal with common names.
Do they use the same technique? I know that Overnet returns
a limited number of items when you search for 'mp3', and it
does so relatively fast. A priori circle may return up to
256^4 results for a given key, which is really a lot...
