Delay-and-loss tolerant interactive access to endpoint nodes
Users will inevitably want interactive access to endpoints: both fixed and mobile. Trying to run protocols like VNC already performs poorly to the fixed endpoints (over wifi), and this will be much worse for the mobile ones.
Some possible avenues to pursue:
- Mosh for shell access (downside: requires user to install client-side software)
- Low-bandwidth alternatives to VNC or X11
