I think this is about twice as hard for me to learn and execute as mutable datashards was, and that was a challenge.
Similarly to that (for mutable datashards, I was studying Tahoe-LAFS; for spritely goblins' distributed code, I'm studying CapTP), I'm not really inventing much new, just tweaking existing documented ideas, but it's a lot for me to soak in.
The spritely goblins networked programming stuff is moving along. I'm out of research mode and into "thinking about the protocol mode".
It's still slow. But you can see the influence of CapTP here: https://gitlab.com/spritely/goblins/commit/87f381c7696b35beaed6aafb38249f25e4ce5a2e

Nothing good would come out of the ability to use copyright law to censor people trying to distribute legal text
