[JDEV] Krufty Jabber Client

I have two, though not overcomeable, problems with wxWindows over GTK+. a)
It forces C++ upon the programmer. If in the future we do some weird
modifications to Kruft (which seems to be a route...) there is a good chance
wxWindows won't be flexible enough to use. b) GTK+ is very closely
integrated with the latest version of NPLayout/Gecko. As of right now, I'd
love to use the NPLayout engine for the UI engine.

I have no clue. I'm not sure if there is a transport list (there should be)
and the webpage seems to have lost all the "Teams" for the many transports
and clients. The best one could do is to download the source and start
screwing around.

Someone _please_ followup and tell me where that secret informative webpage
is. Jer, where are you?
