Conceivably we could create a query-protocol for this, now that authentication 
and resource binding are separate steps.

On a similar note, even if you don't have a conflicting resource, the only way 
to detect for other resources is to rely on presence.  I think it could be 
useful to be able to detect for your other active logins without needing to 
use xmpp-im.
