I get an headache by the idea of yet an other account, but I don't mind
to be reachable as [wahtever]@xsf.org. So why don't we take this as an
opportunity to be really innovative and ahead of the crowd and start
experimenting with technologies like webfinger, stanza forwarding,
vcard-directories, whatever? This way we might help to solve the problem
every is going to run into when implementing this.
