Don't know exactly. Squeak website for instance run Swazoo for years,
but it is behind Apache, which probably care about proper closing of TCP
connections. While when you are directly on the net, many things can
happen. In any case, from the discussion on mentioned thread you can see
the promise, that problem will be solved soon. So I don't panic yet

Most people have an opinion that such setup is complex, that's why your
experience of simplicity is even more important. I can open you an
account on the website to start writing when you'll have time ...
