Hmmm.  It does seem that AVS has this feature.

I'm not sure if you can create a peer-to-peer network with AVS though.

There are many similarities, but if you took apart both systems, you'd find
many differences.  Another is price.  Piper is GPL while AVS is very expensive
and proprietary.

I think Piper will be simpler to use too :-)
