These guys really need to learn how to do distributed updates ala BitTorrent.
Imagine if a new player joining a game needed an update, and all other players
on that server supplied a few k of the update, with cryptographic signatures
on the parts to guarantee integrity. No more dependence on the central server
having the needed bandwidth for all the players updating at once.
