Would anyone like to write about SOAP over BEEP?

I've heard that the SOAP working group has found limitations in HTTP,
particularly so far as peer-to-peer applications go, and that they've
started looking at BEEP as an alternative transport. This subject would be
of great interest to the readers of the O'Reilly P2P web site
(http://openp2p.com) and I'm hoping to find someone who can write a brief
article about this research.

I contacted Noah Mendelsohn, who suggested I post to this list. I know
you're just at the early stages of exploring BEEP. Still, it may be a good
time to write about why you're interested in BEEP. While such an article
would obviously be good for the promoters of BEEP, it would also educate
readers about the goals of SOAP and how you are getting it to work. There's
a small payment involved too, although I don't know the details because I am
not the Web master. (I'm a mere book editor).

Please contact me if this writing project interests you. In fact, I'd like
to hear more about it if you have something interesting to say--even if you
don't want to write an article.
