its true its an unecessary step in THIS particular scenario, but I'm thiking
more of a universal tool we could rely on for our datar storage, and
something like xmpp file sotrage XEP came to mind. IT contains
rudeimentary autehntication, file storage per person or for mutiple people
(ie a group like scenario) and probably fits via the d tube or x tube

I'm just saying that if we choose to use xmpp via technology as its main
communicatinos framework we should really nmaximmize its usage. There is so
much undiscovered potential there, so many possible ways of doing even the
simplest of person to person communictaion, persence and sharing. I was not
at ll suggesting that someone replace using USB base data sharing, but
exploring ways in which in on exmple, u could open a dtube with telepathy
between the 2 mechanisms, lets call them usb sticks for now, and transfer
that way, set  presence state, avtar, and any ohter cool sutff xmpp can

I'm jus saying should we be exploring it?
