Sweet!  Way to go!  Will you please send this announcement to
tahoe-announce at allmydata.org as well?

By the way, this reminds me that we probably need to rename the thing
which acts as a Tahoe-LAFS storage protocol client and a Tahoe-LAFS
HTTP protocol server from "client" to "gateway" (or something).  See
how you had to struggle to explain whether it was just the *client*
client or the LAFS-client-and-HTTP-server that runs on Android?  The
same problem arises when sketching on a napkin the Network (and
Reliance) Topoogy Diagram: [1].

So unless someone has a better idea, I'm going to start calling the
thing in the middle there the "gateway" and stop calling it "the
client" (even though it *is* an LAFS/SSL/TCP/IP client).
