STUN is server-assisted, which makes it more capable for setting up 
peer-to-peer UDP.  However, there is no proxy facility, which is needed if we 
want foolproof connectivity.

The advantage to using server-assisted protocol would be to grab the edge 
cases that can work without having to resort to a proxy.  I'm not sure what 
we should do about this yet..
