Will do...I'll keep everyone informed,
I won't have much time over the next 2 weeks as I'm in the process of
moving house between two cities and starting a new job.

that sounds like a really interesting approach.
We are also investigating some issues of deployment
and are currently involved in the development of an
agent-based deployment-tool. The tool will support
the launching and management of multi-agent applications,
and will be integrated with JADE.
Currently though, we do not focus on the kind of bootstrapping you are
interested in, but rather assume this tool to be running on each network
As your approach is likely to be complementary to our work,
it would be nice, if you could let us know how things work out.
