I've implemented file xfer support in my client and have tested it
against both Psi and Exodus extensively, transferring multiple files
at the same time both ways and I can confirm that it works. However,
it is (as you said) one stream per xfer... I think what George wanted
was a method where one stream could send multiple files in batch
rather than sending/receiving them as individual downloads.

Is there a reason why multiple file xfer's are not in the jabber
protocol yet or if it was, why it was deferred??
