[JDEV] Admin Rights

The only users with admin rights are the ones defined in your jabber.xml
file (in the <admin/> section). E.g., here is that section of my file from
my jabber.to config file:

<read>stpeter at jabber.to</read>
<write>stpeter at jabber.to</write>
<subject>Auto Reply</subject>
<body>This is a special administrative address.  Your message was received
and forwarded to server administrators.</body>

So I (stpeter at jabber.to) am the only one with admin rights. Specifically,
only those listed in the <write/> element (you can have more than one of
these) will be able (normally) to send server announcements.
