    Description of feature: Attempt to connect to all possible IP addresses (maybe up to a limit :)) of a hostname at once and use the first connection which succeeds (on whatever level you want to define "success"). Motivation: Prosody behaves really badly if the first candidate is not connectable and fails with a timeout (blackholed or internet routing mess). The s2s connection will fail consistently until the source of the timeout is fixed.

    Tags for discoverability! Also https://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc8305 is probably the more stable URL for the RFC.
