Does IPFS use proof-of-work?

The IPFS whitepaper (draft 3) states for S/Kademlia:

One scheme includes a proof-of-work crypto puzzle to make generating Sybills expensive.

Generating an IPFS identity is very fast on my computer and I don’t see any code pointing to proof-of-work. Does IPFS use (or plan to use) proof-of-work to fight Sybills?

We have thought about it, And if we need to do this to prevent sybills, we will very likely implement it.
