There actually is an Icehouse (mouse) game -- an adaption into a java
client/server app would be interesting, despite lag issues.

Crashing isn't really that much of the game (it's a cover for a flaw,
not a mechanic), so losing that in online play would be an advantage,
not a disad.  And yeah, Icehouse Online would have all the problems
that any other real time game online has (RTS!), but then, it works
for Halo, so it would work for Icehouse.
