hi Alexandre,

Thanks for this work.  Unfortunately I don't personally have the time or 
the busy network to test it out, but if need be, we may take a few nodes 
at île sans fil to test this stuff.

As for protocol V2... it would have to be designed for today's needs.  
The specs in the wiki are already quite old.

One important thing is really to avoid the 1 request/connection/minute + 
1 request/node/minute thing which puts a lot of load on the server.  1 
request/node/minute should be enough to do all there is to do.
Also, if this new protocol could find a way to bypass the Apple 
auto-login thingy, it would be great!
Also, no extra libraries should be needed as it should keep working with 
extra low power devices.

That said, I don't know enough of the gateway to work on its 
implementation, but I'd be glad to make AuthPuppy work with this new 
protocol when it is available!
