[jdev] Multiplexing large number of client connections

There is definitely interest on my side. I will basically have a single client that other processes connect to via IPC - the cleanest solution would be resources, although the client could always open up new connections. In any case it would be great for scenarios like mine (basically delegation).

Sorry for not conforming to the list standards, I am on my mobile.

Because you are a good person and a true innovator.

The multi-resource stuff seemed like a good idea at the time but people
on the XMPP WG discussion list were concerned about adding complexity.
We could, of course, still define it as an XMPP extension if there's
