I'd like to request implementation of XEP-0174 (Serverless Messaging)
for Zeroconf link-local peer discovery and chat.
As far as I'm aware, both Empathy and iChat already support this.
Empathy also supports Jingle so this would allow link-local calls
between the 2 clients. Unfortunately, iChat doesn't support the
official Jingle protocol yet, hopefully Apple will decide to implement
it in a new version.
How long would this take? I would greatly appreciate this feature. If
you had a donation system, I'd donate 50 to 100£ for it.
