Networking in general

Registered by Luke Faraone on 2008-02-23

Add support for networking in GASP. This should detect if GASP is running on the XO, and if so, should use OLPCGames and the Jabber Protocol. If GASP is not running on the OLPC it should use Avahi for network discovery.

2 Possible api implementations.

1.

A get_messages() function that works like keys_pressed()
It returns a list of messages your computer has been sent since last calling get_messages()

get_messages( filter)
     The filter can be "first", "last", "all", "new"

It is up to the programmer to format the strings in his own way.

send_message(player)

2

Allow access to the clients/servers methods like a faw dbus.

----------------------------
I would like to note that I don't really know anything I just want to start a discussion.
