Guillaume, Alban,

The telepathy solution seems quite fine, at least with an "invitation use 
case". But for KsirK I think more to a solution where games (wanting to run 
the game or connect to a waiting one) connect to a room (viewed as a 
whiteboard) and discuss there to find their peers.

Do you think that telepathy can be used in such a way ?

In fact, I have finished implementing a first Jabber only version doing the 
first step as described in my initial mail. I will now start to work on the 
second step and if telepathy is really a possibility I'll look to it in more
