Prosody does that too for HTTP, SSL and SSL if I recall correctly...just
wondered what the correct way of doing TLS resumption is. XEP-0198 seems to
suggest resumption on STARTTLS, which does feel strange since you'd loose a
lot through the extra rount-trips. Although I agree, best would be to just
do TLS resumption on the usual XMPP port as advertised via SRV for that
domain, which would require the aforementioned port multiplexing. Does
jabberd support TLS resumption? If so what client has it been tested
against if any at all?
