Summary0007142: DHT find peer route option required?
DescriptionIt seems like setting the route option FIND_PEER implicitly sets to block type to HELLO.
Why is not the hello block itself the FIND_PEER mechanism?
Is there really a use case for GET/PUTs of HELLOs directly?
It seems like the handling of the flag makes processing needlessly complicated and is also a source of confusion for a user of the API (or the flag).

We should rename the flag to FIND_APPROXIMATE and modify the code to allow other block types and not implicitly assume HELLO.
This allows specific use cases where the key is not a hash, but an identifier that is comparable (using a xor distance).
