We are talking about a sand castle here that was kicked down by a kid. It's
a bit bizarre to claim that it was built to withstand rockets.

Given that the recon algorithm was designed as a PhD thesis, it seems like
a safe bet that it was designed to solve the academic problem of set
reconciliation between distributed systems with optimal message complexity.
Funny story how it ended up becoming infrastructure for a security ecosystem.
