currently thumbnails are transmitted using http(s) or BoB (XEP-0231). But
with resolutions we can have todays even on small screens, size of images
is growing. Transmitting them using BoB can block the connection and is a
useless waste of bandwidth. I'm thinking about P2P transmission, so http is
not an option here. As XEP-0234 is able to transmit several files in the
same session, it would be a good candidate for that.
Doesn anybody see an issue with using XEP-0234 for that? If no I'll propose
the change on the XEP.
