Sure. FreecivAC includes Stewart's "old" borders code, which
calculates borders on both the server and the client. This means that
different players can have different ideas about where their borders are
(since the borders are calculated from city locations, and different
players can see different cities, due to fog of war, while the server can
see them all). I thought this was quite an intriguing solution, which
could result in border disputes between players, but I think most people
just found it confusing!
Stewart's "new" borders code should be in the freeciv-dev archives
somewhere. There were a few bugs in this code, but I believe he's been
working on fixing them recently. I'm sure he'll be able to comment
"Verbosity leads to unclear, inarticulate things."
