Stream tubes can be use in server mode (when connected to a jabber
server using Gabble) or in link local mode (without server, using

In the first case, we don't do NAT penetration yet (it's planned see
#4047) so all the data go through the server, making big transfer slow.

In the second case, we don't need NAT penetration as peers are on the
same network and so can communicate directly. So we use a raw TCP
connection to transfer stream tubes's data.
