so you wouldn't necessarily insist on a TER/doc-server distribution 
mechanism that relies on TYPO3 features only, right?
because i believe that currently, TYPO3 (or extrep, to be precise) itself 
doesn't offer the best way to replicate user requests amongst several 

to sum it up: hopefully, the TER2 project will not tend to demonstrate the 
(presumed) power of TYPO3 in sophisticated file distribution but instead 
proliferate a distributed, fail-safe file delivery infrastructure (hope you 
understand that =:o), i.e. there a better ways to distribute static files to 
the user community than it is currently done in TER.

perhaps this is the time to throw overboard some of the TYPO3 paradigms 
(backward compatibility at any cost) and to introduce some new ways to let 
users connect to the "TERs". does the TER always have to reflect the _very 
latest_ state of development? no, it hasn't, users can also life with 
extension versions as of the day before as long as they can _connect_ to the 
TER at all - so TER2 should cope with that demand.

just my 2 cents,
