See conversation in issue #60 for the initial discussion.

Mentioning this in https://unhosted.org/adventures/14/Peer-to-peer-communication.html:

So this simple demo app uses webfinger and sockethub to implement a simple text chat. It's still not very usable, since sockethub was not really designed to listen on ports; this means you can have only one chat conversation at a time. But we'll work on that and will eventually get it working as a proper chat app, with an addressbook and everything.

OK that's fine. I wouldn't say it's not designed to listen on ports. It's perfectly capable of it. Maybe saying: since the functionality for opening up new ports on the fly is a feature not yet implemented in sockethub.. ?

Also putting this text here for reference:

The goals of Sockethub are to provide a generic API to messaging from unhosted web apps, that includes posting to someone elses instance. Consider for example, a webfinger record that has a sockethub entry along with it's remotestorage one:

    {
      "href": "https://storage.5apps.com/silverbucket",
      "rel": "remotestorage",
      "type": "https://www.w3.org/community/rww/wiki/read-write-web-00#simple",
      "properties": {
        "http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6749#section-4.2": "https://5apps.com/rs/oauth/silverbucket"
      }
    },

    {
      "href": "https://sockethub.5apps.com/",
      "rel": "sockethub",
      "type": "http://sockethub.org/rel/sockethub",
      "properties": {
        "http://sockethub.org/rel/useraddress": "nick@silverbucket.net"
      }
    }

Now, consider another users wants to get a hold of you. They have your sockethub endpoint, and the user address you register as when you connect to it.

With that information they could make an HTTP POST to sockethub, something like:

HTTP POST https://sockethub.5apps.com/
{
  "actor": {
    "address": "michiel@michielbdejong.com",
    "name": "Michiel B. de Jong"
  },
  "target": [
    {
      "address": "nick@silverbucket.net"
    }
  ],
  "platform": "webrtc",
  "verb": "invite",
  "object": {
    // .... webrtc connect information ...
  }
}

This is all hypothetical for now, but the idea is that if I'm online, with a WebRTC enabled app, I'd get your invitation for a WebRTC chat.
