And thanks for your quick response. I will consider your suggestion and
take a look at the source right now to get down to the details. I first
watched the communication for a high level overview, which for me is
simpler than diving into the code.
I think OTR is harder to support. And I want to keep it simple. On the
other hand the authentication mechanism seems to be worthwhile. So this
should be my long term goal. But for now I will stick with simple
encryption, which for now meets my demands.
