yes, but not quickly.

It will definitely run the server. With the current client, once you get a few hundred networks it'll probably be pretty slow. I plan to address a lot of client list management issues in there.

The server itself can run on low-power embedded hardware, and I've run it myself for long periods of time on a P200MMX.
