I keep getting requests in my Apache logs from a bot with the user agent AppEngine-Google; (+http://code.google.com/appengine; appid: lookingglass-server) I understand that this is a looking glass server, but I don't know what a looking glass server is. Googling seems to bring up lots of examples but no description. What is a looking glass server?
