[JDEV] a concept for secure, reliable, file transfer

first, an introduction... this document is a work in progress :)

>From what I gather, this system would require a change to the jabber
protocol to allow for a special message type - one which advertises the
file access info to recipient peers. (an advertisment message)

Ideally, this advertisment message would be encrypted using the
recipient's public key. This requires a key exchange. I know that gabber
supports some sort of gpg encryption, which must require key
exchange. Anyone out there know much about this? :)

Ideas are welcome :)
