    55However, there are some obstacles to running the Tahoe filesystem layer on another DHT:
    6  * the code isn't strictly factored into layers (even though most code files belong mainly to one layer), so there isn't a narrow API between the grid and filesystem-related abstractions.
     6 * the code isn't strictly factored into layers (even though most code files belong mainly to one layer), so there isn't a narrow API between the key-value store and filesystem-related abstractions.
    77 * the communication with servers currently needs to be encrypted (independently of the share encryption), and other DHTs probably wouldn't support that.
    88 * because the filesystem has only been used with one key-value store layer up to now, it may make assumptions about that layer that haven't been clearly documented.
