Ah, I see your point. Very good point, in fact. I guess there are two
ways of solving that. Either make the hub connect to each user to try
him (bad idea, I admit), or do something which I very much think that
we should implement anyway - build a "warning system":

Ident servers? if to connect to something, why not fetch some (could be) useful info at the same time?
