Hi all

In ejabberd it is possible for the user
xy at server.net
to create the node "home/server.net/xy" - and only for this user.

Using ejabberd it is possible to write a jabber client that stores ALL
configuration files to "home/server.net/xy/programName/config"

If the program knows the jid it is possible to write and read from this 
node without
having more information. There is no need for a "local" config file.

It is possible to get the node id from jid.

The way ejabberd is doing that is a bug.
If it is not possible to calculate the node id from jid, it is not 
possible to store config
files in pubsub.

PS: pubsub is the coolest thing I have seen since 1993 - when I have 
seen the first webbrowser.
