[ale] curious spam

I'm not sure - maybe you should get a patent on that idea? The bandwidth 
might be a little low, but you also don't need to know exactly where your 
agents are. As icing on the cake, make it real spam, and earn a nickle or 
two for running your communications setup!

The downside is, of course, ensuring that the message gets through.
