[ejabberd] Multiple clients over a single connection?

I thought about that, but at least by my limited understanding of S2S,  
that would couple processors to a have to run on the same machine.  
I.e. the processor JID sits on the other side of the S2S connection,  
so it must be in the domain of the server that the S2S connection  
impersonates. So moving that jid to another server separately from the  
other processors that share the S2S connection becomes impossible,
