[jdev] using XMPP for discovery of SIP addresses

Hey there.

First off, if there's a better mailing list for this message,
please let me know - trawling the list descriptions on mailman
seemed to say that this was the best list.

I'm the author of a package called Shtoom, a VoIP software suite
written in Python (using Twisted). I'm thinking about adding Jabber
support to Shtoom for the purposes of discovering someone else's 
SIP address (thus avoiding the need for a SIP registration server,
plus people can use their existing Jabber accounts rather than having
to create a new identity). I'm at something of a loss as to how to
do this - should Shtoom publish the SIP address, or should it instead
ask another XMPP client "I want to make a SIP call", and it can then
decide to send back the SIP address. I've not been able to find existing
work in this area - TINS looks interesting, but it's not really what 
I'm looking for right now.
