Ahh! I implement it transport level with the knowledge that etherx (or
whatever router we may be going through) may go through multiple servers!
However, since Jabber is a transport level protocol, the tunnels between
transports are ignored.
etherx remains the same.

Only concerned about transport level, not router. I tried to make the
language specific. Should I edit to make it more strong?
