In attendance: Zooko, Marlowe, Andrew, Daira, Str4d

servermap is None then it generates a new mapping from the other
arguments. It might be clearer to have two separately-named functions.
Zooko is examining all code that invokes _calculate_mappings(). Zooko
rewrote _calculate_mappings() to be two separate functions for those
two uses and it did indeed make generate_upload_plan() easier to

Next week we'll try the same time: Tuesday at 23:00Z, despite the
