[jdev] S2S questions - from attribute and version support

Incidentally, it seems that jabber.org includes version=1.0 but doesn't
offer SASL - at least for c2s connections.

Hi Vinod,

I just wanted to mention that I ran into the same trouble.  When I was
on my server implementation, I had compatibility problems because other 
servers went against RFC 3920 by including version='1.0' in s2s when they 
didn't actually support SASL.

The RFC definitely needs to be updated about this.  I think this topic has 
come up often enough that it is not something to brush aside as an 
implementation note.  For now, servers implementors seem to be taking
into their own hands, and so not only do we have 1.0 without SASL, but we 
have TLS+dialback.  These things are not in the RFC.
