  If authentication were based using radius, we would automaticaly
have roaming ! (Connect the nearest jabber server but tell it that you 
are from other server ->  login foo at bar ).
  Messages can be stored in the original server, not in the connected
server. The "send" part can be done by the connected server (nearer).

  It's like dial to ISP B and use the POP3 server from ISP A, but SMTP 
to ISP B.
