Being able to freely spectate during a netdemo would be super cool, even when the demo is paused. Simply hitting "spectate" while watching a netdemo will allow the viewer to freely spectate the demo.

I second this, this would be super cool.

In order to do that, we need to do the following :

1) As a spectator, never send out your position (would even save bandwidth between clients & server !!)

2) However, as you're not sending it, make the movements entirely clientside

3) Follow the same train while demospectating (should even be quickier)
