[Twisted-Python] How to achieve a reliable "connection" over UDP?

Thank you for all your comments!

I think I'll be looking at Vertex because I also need the actual UDP 
hole-punching - the whole Vertex solution.

My dream or idea is to have p2p file sharing with webdav and real 
mounted file systems on *NIX and Windows.

So I can "export" e.g. my /home/peter/projects writable to my other 
machines as "projects", and /home/peter/public_ro as "public" read-only 
to Fred, Sally and Alice.

I import Paul's "jokes" share as /mnt/p2pdav/paulsJokes, and Sandy's 
"pics" share as /mnt/p2pdav/sandy/pics. And then access these files as 
network drives.

Possibly later have /home/peter/projects be automatically synchronized 
between all my machines.

Thats the basic idea anyway.

Well, this looks like the right fit for me. I realize this project is 
not small, but it is an itch I've had for a long time, and it needs 
scratching!!! But it is a personal-free-time project, so we'll see how 
fast it goes... :-)
