hummmm ... it seems like a good idea too ...

I was thinking about how to have the files organized ... 

I first tought about creating a dir for servers, like

ls /tmp
jabber.org server2.com server3.com


ls /tmp/jabber.org/
peter mel samuelgoto ra017335


ls /tmp/jabber.org/samuelgoto
messages files profile 

Ideas ?
