Sure, most DHT implementations work perfectly for signalling, as long
as there are enough people without NAT helping out. But I don't see
anything about the actual rtp stream there. Does it get sent over DHT,
too? I see that the DHT is slowed down deliberately. That together
with uncontrollable commonly bad-quality home internet connections is
making me fear bad latencies and packet drop just as with tor.
