Please mail your patch (if it's only a few lines) to the mailing list
or to Ulf and me.   We have some (reasonable) coding guidelines for
the project on the www-page and I'd like to see that the change doesn't do
something against them (e.g. "fixes" for warnings from C++ compilers
although the code is C, not C++).

What kind of an approach you've thought of?

Peer-to-peer or client-server?

You can transmit the game state across network on different levels,
simplest one is transmiting just:
- random seed
- the level name
- player interaction (key presses/joystick movements)

And more complicated one could transmit all level data at game startup and 
within level changes between the states of all the game objects.  (would 
really require separate server that handles this.)
