the file transfer protoXEP had the huge inconvenience of being linked to an 
application (file transfer), losing one of the major advantage of Jingle (it's 
flexibility with separation between transport and application).

It should probably use the security precondition defined in XEP-0166 and 
encrypt the stream between the application and the transport.

very excited to see all this moves in e2e encryption by the way :)
