Hi Sean,

It is a good option.
I'm not sure the 20 byte hash will be able to fullfill the
requirements of all the clients.
It is good to store multiple chunk of data on a single hash.

Don't bother about the load you give to OpenDHT. It is upto them to
maintain the balance of the servers.

Think of a scheme, where you can split a file and store in a single
hash and retrieve the whole file from the single hash. It is an
example. Not sure whether you can use openDHT for filesharing

It need not be file, if you want to store any info on the DHT
associated with you, you can use single hash and end with that.
