A -1 from my side, i think it's not cool and easy to use. I think users
with accounts on j.o should immediately be able to register at that
service of j.o, too. 

Users of other servers would require to register at j.o, which would
bring more users to j.o jabberd itself. 

Or we have space for a JEP regarding remote authentication through a
special IQ chunk, something like this: 

S1: <iq type='get'><query xmlns='remote-auth'>
    <username>uls at amessage.de</username><hash>AEFEADEA</hash>
    </query></iq>

S2: <iq type='result'><query
xmlns='remote-auth'><accepted/></query></iq>


I think we had a slightly related discussion (remote authentication) a couple of years ago already... Can
remember someone else ? 



Cheers,
Ulrich
