Im still not convinced this is really needed for P2P mode, it means much
higher requirements for the server role client, and im not sure we should be
requireing the extra complexity of having to combine the two streams into
one, what if both clients where pocket pc's ? they might not have the spare
processor power but still want to use P2P, I think we should make sure the
P2P mode extends as far as we can, not just for two people but up to as many
as there is bandwidth available for, because I honestly dont think many
people will host these servers because of the bandwidth they will consume,
certainly not for free, and I dont think we should be forcing users to pay
for something they dont have to.

Yea on second thoughts that could be a problem.
