[Discuss] Bitmessage

A new open source encrypted email product:
  Bitmessage is a P2P communications protocol used to send encrypted
  messages to another person or to many  subscribers. It is
  decentralized and trustless, meaning that you  need-not inherently
  trust any entities like root certificate  authorities. It uses strong
  authentication which means that the sender  of a message cannot be
  spoofed, and it aims to hide "non-content" data,  like the sender and
  receiver of messages, from passive eavesdroppers  like those running
  warrantless wiretapping programs.

Anyone tried this out?
