Monticello p2p repository

When you load Tric-P2P and startup a peer, it hooks into the MCCacheRepository and announces everything you publish from then on onto the network.
NOTE - I said EVERYTHING. So if you work on commercial software, DO NOT LOAD Tric-P2P !!!
The presence mechanism is used to pass information about available packages onto the network. When you select a package after opening a Tric P2P repository nodes that announced the package will be pinged; the first one to respond is asked to send it over. Usually this should get you packages fairly quickly.
- Do not broadcast everything :)
