Hi Matt, 

>From your short description, how different would this be from an S2S
connector working within the same domain? I see a lot of leverage we could
gain taking this approach against the more disparate existing 'component'
connections. Most of the stream and authentication implementation could be
re-used, don't you believe/

Do you have a link to your initial proposal?

We've submitted an initial proposal to PSA for a generic "multi-stream"
or "connection manager" (as we call it) protocol. It's largely similar
to the external component protocol, but with SASL, TLS, and a few extras
thrown in. This is part of our "Pampero" project for greatly increased
scalability in Wildfire.

We definitely agree that a cross-server protocol for connection managers
or multi-stream is the best approach. It will allow proxies to work with
any server as well as give the XMPP protocol fundamentally better
scalability. Our own implementation of the protocol will be in the next
several months and we're attempting to work with some other server
implementers to see it more widely adopted.
