A NAP is a network access point - a meeting place for networks.  There
is currently no provision for a route server, although that would not
be hard to add - just install one someplace.

Part of this reason behind the WDC NAP is just to get something up &
running & see what works & what does not.  If we need a route server,
we will find out pretty fast.  If we have one, and things work better
with or without one, then we will have learned something & we can go

I'm certainly open to experimenting to see what works & what does not.
This WDC NAP should give us the platform to find out.
