Well, a jabber server could listen on a multicast socket and upon
request return a service tag ( or something alike ) to the bone.
Something like that:
Server listens for <disco> tags on local multicast ip and port 5222
A client sends to the multicast address:
from='romeo at montague.net/orchard'
The server returns:
to='romeo at montague.net/orchard'
IIRC there is the sender information in every multicast packet
transmitted along with the payload. So the client receiving the iq
result will simply know, ok - the sender of this packet supports client
and server connections.
