Spaces on a shoestring

What if an application used an irc channel as a (Java)Spaces implementation mechanism? That would be cool. Persistence could be manged by an IRC bot running on the server (or, indeed, any node) that logged all the messages.

Encryption? Any standard mechanism (RSA, blowfish etc) plus base64 encoding should take care of that.

Wonder if anyone’s implemented this idea yet?
