[jdev] Serverless (peer2peer) jabber sessions

This may be somewhat off-topic, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone finds it interesting. I'm one of the co-authors of a system called Kenosis which is a fully distributed peer-to-peer RPC system. It is 100% pure python and therefore quite cross-platform. I mention it because we recently added support for Rendezvous/Zeroconf. Therefore it is extremely easy to use Kenosis to discover and send messages to people locally or globally.

We've often thought this might be an interesting addition for an IM client. We've already used it to build some similar things. I wonder whether it could be considered an alternate transport for Jabber clients to talk to each other when no server is available to mediate and/or as a way for clients to discover other Jabber servers.

Anyway, that's my $.02. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to discuss further.


PS. Here's some additional info about Kenosis:
