Thank you once again for an informative post!
I definitely do not mean for this to sound rude but if you guys are addressing the "dust/fee" issue in the upcoming 0.8 release why is this now such an important matter?
I'm just guessing here but I would think these guys making the smallest "dust" wouldn't be looking to turn around and sell the 0.01 LTC they spent a few days mining but would instead save for a lot longer (so hopefully by the time they have a couple of LTC the new version will be out!)
I'd just hate to see people scared away from p2pool since I think the fact that payments go right to your wallet (so you don't get pools like notroll etc. where all of a sudden you can't get your coins anymore) as well as the decentralized nature (no 51% attack and the ability to fall back to another node in the same pool in case of DDOS, HW failure, etc.) are very important features that no other pool can really match.
Thank you again for all your hard work for the LTC community
