Revive Kademlia DHT

Peers in I2P currently 'discover' each other through a floodfill system (several high-traffic routers inform the other routers of each other). This system is not as scalable as a DHT system, and it's also less secure (because of the reliance on a limited number of nodes). Changing this system or replacing it, will be an interesting and challenging task.
