This is easy to implement within the current sharing framework.  It just
requires each game to pair off users as they join the activity.

This is much harder, and much more interesting.  At the beginning of the
project, there was much discussion of a store-and-forward network, so that
students could send e-mail and use other non-real-time internet services, as
long as they occasionally meshed with someone who occasionally had internet
access.  This is still a worthy goal, but it has slipped in priority, to the
point of being forgotten.
