Spin out Crashplan P2P backup as a standalone product.

CrashPlan is moving to a business only model. I'd like them to continue offering, or make it possible for someone else to offer, the peer to peer functionality of their home backup client. Options that I see:

 

1) CrashPlan/Code42 open sources the home client (seems unlikely).CrashPlan/Code42 offers a basic product that allows P2P backups for home users, removing all data loads except for host management from Code42. I'm sure many people would be willing to pay a small fee to cover the centralized management aspect of this.
