There's no guarantee that two peers won't connect to 2 different sockets 
using the same identity.

Identity is guaranteed to be unique among peers attached to a single 
socket. That's all.

Anyway. No point in discussing it, as the messages are swapped to the 
file only in case of congestion, making the file useless for recovery.
