It would be nice if all these popular open source projects could use
standards for a lot of things.

I'm looking at the bittorrent client field, and there becgause of the
circumstances and stuff all the "competing" clients are working together to
standardize just about everything from peer exchange to encryption.....

Imagine if we could decide on a de-facto salt+hashing method for
passwords... a standardized user-table layout.... the same cookie format for

/me spends too much time idealizing.
