Not much. But it would allow others to run the server code and offer similar 
service, at the very least.

Of course. The "time-consuming" part is what bothers me. I *could* throw in an 
hour or two to set-up a peerio server had the code been available; I have 
absolutely *no way in hell* of throwing in days or weeks of work to implement 
their protocol.
