-1 for the moment, planning on moving to +1... how do I discover that a
server supports pass? Is there an implementation up and running at the
moment? pass.jabber.org doesn't seem to be up.

-1. I'd also like to see file transfer first, so that we have a way of
moving these around.

-1. :) is good enough for now.
Actually, I could see a case being made for something like this is in
presence, for things like StPeter's happiness meter hooked to a
potentiometer, but I don't think it has a lot of value for messages.

-1. There exists a partial solution already for this, which is to send all
of your contacts from one account to the other using:
I'm not sure how to get the security right to automate it further than this,
particularly when there really isn't a good way to generate
cryptographically -strong trust in the S2S case.

-1. Interesting idea, but with no publicly-visible implementation for an
informational JEP, and no ongoing work, let's treat it as an interesting
prototype, and move on.

+1. We need to have a standards-track version of this soon. The main
starting-point difference is probably moving stuff out of the HTTP header,
and into name/value pairs in the body. And all of the arguing about which
firewalls it needs to traverse.... :)

-1. No anonymous authors, please.
