One suggestion I would make is to use the Rendezvous protocol.  You can

This way you could get boxes with zero initial configuration that
organize by themselves, and discover each other automatically.  It might
be best to let this wait to another version (0.9?) but it would
defiantly add a VERY nice feature.
