    Bonjour networking

      I'm wondering two things about the AIR client with respect to zero configuration networking (i.e. Apple calls it bonjour)

      1) Would the security sandbox allow it to browse the local LAN for Bonjour (i.e. ZeroConf) services?
      2) Has anyone tried to write code for browsing and/or registering zeroconf services?

      Apple has some (old) open source Java classes available... anyone have an idea if ActionScript and AIR socket support would be robust to port from the Java code?

      P.S. Almost forgot to answer "Why would you want this?" -- Seems it would be interesting if AIR clients on a LAN could magically recognize and find each other. Perhaps an AIR app could find and share with iPhoto or iTunes.
