Comment(by zooko):

 This review of Tahoe-LAFS on arstechnica.com reminds me that while issue
 #68 seems relatively non-urgent to me because I know how little the grid
 relies on the introducer and how easy it is to replicate introducers, it
 would be much better if we could simply say "the grid is fully
 decentralized" and then introductory articles like this one could optimize
 out a whole paragraph describing the introducer.

 Also, fixing this ticket would be fun.  Someone should do it.  :-)
