  1. Initial import of chimera-1.20 into the packages collection

    	Structured peer-to-peer overlays, sometimes also referred to as
    	Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs), are scalable network infrastructures
    	that support Internet-scale network applications utilizing a
    	decentralized resource model.  At their core, these overlays provide
    	Key-Based Routing (KBR), where messages addressed to any Key will
    	incrementally route towards an overlay node responsible for that key.
    	On top of the KBR layer, these overlays can support distributed
    	storage using a DHT layer or data location using a DOLR layer.
    
    	On top of these overlays, researchers have proposed numerous
    	distributed applications, including distributed storage and backup
    	systems, multicast systems, resilient routing networks, distributed
    	spam filters, mobility support and anonymous routing networks.
    
    	Chimera is a light-weight C implementation of a "next-generation"
    	structured overlay that provides similar functionality as
    	prefix-routing protocols Tapestry and Pastry.  Chimera gains
    	simplicity and robustness from its use of Pastry's leafsets, and
    	efficient routing from Tapestry's locality algorithms.  In addition to
    	these properties, Chimera also provides efficient detection of node
    	and network failures, and reroutes messages around them to maintain
    	connectivity and throughput.
