If anyone know anything more about this tech, or has tried it out, let
me know. They are at www.es5.com (site layout and rhetorical flourishes
("The next revolution in P2P file sharing is upon you. Resistance is
futile," were obviously inspired by Star Trek and especially the (in my
extremely humble opinion) totally awesome Babylon 5 series. 

NB: the developers claim their app is spyware and adware free, but do
NOT claim *absolute* untraceability, just making it so hard to do as to
be impractical. (For techies: among the technologies they claim to have
deployed are transfers through proxies, port hopping and spoofing, SSL
transfers, use of UDP instead of TCP, encrypted communication between
clients as well as several others. The description sounds plausible, at
least).
