Had an idea for a testing service based on a peer-to-peer topology. You could do things like distributed load tests, remote pings, remote traceroutes, and check http request response times.

You would have to load up a servant to use the service, so that every user of the service becomes a potential testing platform.

Security would only allow guests to submit tests that ran from at most 5 remote stations. This would prevent the network from being used for DoS attacks.
