Ahhh, I see now.  So does it actually advertise a Jabber <presence> stanza 
over DNS-SD?  Or is it some alternative format?  And how is this process "by 
definition single-user"?  It seems like if you can include one presence chunk 
in the advertisement, you could include two (at the risk of violating iChat's 
existing protocol), but again I know very little about DNS-SD.

I still feel it would be more Jabber-like to obtain the presence over the 
Jabber connection, but I can see how doing it over DNS-SD might be more 
optimized for the situation.
