Hi Ian,
as normal tester of the release I am not able to provide you with a
documentation of the protocol. there seems to be much Information and
comments in the code. Well, think to send the Echo over OTR is a quite good
initiative: Adding the libspoton kernel to OTR has the following pro's:
- it adds another encryption layer to OTR
- it offers a unique GUI api to every OTR
- Strategey: OTR becomes not a encryption Service, but a Messenger itself:
you can still send the Message from Google-to-Google user line, but with
the OTR-KERNEL Hybridity, you also can use any other line like  AOL - AOL
or OTR to OTR.
All Messenger protocols and accounts will become just an IP address, not a
Login for a dedicated account or line. That means this hybrid tool would
override all IM-Networks/Accounts and dedicated surveillance for these
accounts and lines, as the message can "travel" several connections. inside
AOL to AOL , but also any other connection.
