Instead of the single value now stored in tahoe.cfg, we thought to have a list of Helpers and the possibility to select one of them from that list using a particular selection algorithm.
a- Allow for a variable number of helpers, statically contained in “BASEDIR/helpers.”
b- Before sending a file to the helper
1- Check all the helpers to retrieve their statistics. 2- Choose the helper with best stats.
c- Send the cyphertext to the chosen Helper
