[OpenAFS] pre-fetch cache (odd thoughts about bit-torrent....)

I guess I'll blame this on a bad night's sleep. But in reading this 
discussion about a pre-fetch cache an odd thought cropped up.

If the OpenAFS file servers have a notion about what exists in the 
caches of active client systems, would it be possible, (with the 
cooperation of the client code), to redirect requests for at least some 
of the requests from the file server to some of the client systems (a-la 
bit torrent)...

I'll go back to foraging for caffeine now....
