Another thing to consider here is ordering of messages (sent over
transport). If Broadcast udp doesn't support ordering of messages (I know
udp doesn't, assuming broadcast udp doesn't too, but I may be wrong). If it
doesn't, you've to build ordering logic on top of it. If transport layer
doesn't provide ordering, we cannot reason about consistency of data stored
on filesystem.
