now that the backend is mostly done, i am thinking about
a GUI for netjack.

i already found gtknetsource.py on my HD, i started mucking
with that some months ago.
i plan to extend that thingy now.

but setting up the connection, and getting IP addresses
of users is still a PITA.
i am thinking along the lines of an IM like thing, 
based on jabber.

i am not seeing good options to making this available
in the various IM clients. 
thats why i would rather like to have modified jabberd running
on jackaudio.org or at the consortium servers.

it would not support chatting or stuff.
only show who is online. and if a session is running.
it would only make the IP of a user available when he agrees,
to open session... blabla... security.

so basically you click on your buddy, to open a session.
buddy agrees.
IP of buddy is transmitted. tool measures connection.
provides you with some options.
ie compression ratio, number of channels, latency, who is master ?

and starts the netjack session.

thoughts ?
