Yeah, a UDP broadcast was my first thought, but didn't think of VTX, that's
a good point. Broadcast/Anycast should be usable with the same protocol on
top - it would limit the propogation rate as updates would be effectively
point-to-point, but at the same time you woudn't get a possible stampede of
requests on startup.
