Connecting with a component protocol is even easier than establishing
client session. :-)

On the other hand, component is just a "bot" using different addressing
scheme. You're able to control user part of JID, not only resource.
And you're handling all user names and resources with one connection.

So, that really depends on requirements of your protocol, whether you
want a component (server-like "session") or just a bot (client session)
