Exactly myself and others were working on this type of thing on the
jabber.org wiki (which doesnt seem to be there anymore), but Peter kindly
found the following URL to the google cache of it.
No one else really seemed interested in it up until now. If I were to
produce a new spec I would simplify it much more but it gives the basic
jist, i.e. you communicate a file hash utilising the industry standard cid:
URI which allows the recipient to retrieve the file via standard file
transfer should they want to, nice and simple and seems far more "jabber
like" to me.
