If you're interested, WireGuard has some pretty primitive hashtables,
for which maybe Rosebush would be an interesting replacement:

In peerlookup.c, note the "At the moment, we limit" comment for an idea
of some of the hairy issues involved in replacing these. But I wouldn't
be entirely opposed to it, if you see some interesting potential for
Rosebush here. That's a very tentative interest -- maybe it won't work
out in the end -- but nonetheless, seeing this piqued my curiosity. If
you're looking to see how this behaves in a place beyond dcache, this
might be something to play with.
