Hi Peter,

As I said a couple of days ago on the room, I would be really happy to 
see an URI scheme for jingle, specially for file transfer, I think it's 
really lacking.
Actually, even for video call it would be useful: being apple to click 
on a link on a webpage to make the XMPP client request the session would 
be great.
