Client-server architecture? That sounds like contributing to the
problem. Is there any chance that that project could be redirected so
that it contributes to the solution?

I mean it would be nice to have 6 more people helping to have a more
decentralized world by somehow improving Tox -or any other Free Software
going in that direction.

I'm not a Tox expert, but I think every Tox node can be seen as a client
and a redundant server itself. For the backup thing, maybe you want to
consider to implement a distributed solution instead of a centralized one.
