In a separate mail you will recieve the first draft of a document which
describes the client interaction with a whois++ mesh.

What is described is based on the standard centroid mechanism, both
how the normal "servers-to-ask" response is used, but also how
a client can "expand" a search by asking "polled-for" queries.

This document will in a very near future be expanded with a 
description of how the Directory-Of-Servers works and
can be used from a clients perspective.

So, this is the first try to describe how the mesh is working...
