Hm, you know what? The problem with users who are just "trying it out"
by following the quickstart instructions, and they don't have enough
servers to robustly distribute the shares around to multiple
servers—maybe the solution to that problem is to set the default value
of K and N to 1 (in addition to setting the default value of H to 1).
That would also serve to draw attention to the fact that the
confidentiality and integrity features are (mostly) unrelated to the
erasure coding.

What do you folks think about that? Maybe this would encourage users
to think of Tahoe-LAFS as potentially useful even when they have only
one server. (And it is potentially useful for that case!)
