Quoting Max Metral <Max.Metral at peoplepcHQ.com>:

  Yes, many do.  But you don't SEE it.  MSN is an example.  When you connect to 
the login server, it validates you, and updates your 'profile' to say what 
machine your going to be using.  It then tells you to go ahead and connect to 
that server.  8-P  Even does it for chats.  Says there is a chat coming in, and 
to connect to machine x.x.x.x to talk to the person..  8-P

  If we had a way to alias users, aka, tcharron at jabber.org, but allow me to 
connect to tcharron at server1.jabber.org.  I know someone went down that path, 
but I'm unsure of who, and how far they ever got.  Perhaps thats what evolved 
into the mod_farm modules?
