So, for your latency question, I would have to say that "it depends on what do 
you want to do". See, there are really no implementation for it at the 
moment, or something for us to test that. What we have is in GNUnet's roadmap 
one application called "gnunet-chat", that does exactly that: swaps messages 
between nodes. When that's built we'll be able to see the real latency 
challange in GNUnet, but, otoh, we believe that gnunet-chat <will work>, and, 
depending on what kind of stuff you're wanting to do, that can already be 
enough. Most MMOG's send little more traffic than a simple chat system 
does... Unless you try to use the network to send graphics data.
