I don't think jabberd 1.4.3 can do either off-the-shelf (but I could be
wrong), but XMPP-compliant servers (including jabberd2) should support
unique server-allocated resources via resource binding. You could
then use a chat room, using the server-generated resource for the
nickname (provided all room occupants come from the same server).
