Maybe a silly question, but I haven't found the reasonable solution yet:

OK, you have the multiple servers and distributed world now, but where
do you connect to next time, after you've crossed the world borders?

There are at least two possible answers:

- Keep the entry point the same and just route the requests to the
remote world, thus increasing overhead
- Change the entry point, complicating the client (which may not allow
it at all, like applet)

Any comments?
