	Well, I guess my next question would be is if we have any sort of tentative
date for a working server that will use this protocol?  My suggestion would
be to get the transport using it for the client connections first, so anyone
workingon clients can get their act together the fastest..

	Also, I know there was mention of a CVS archive..  How often is it updated
on the server side? Looking at the snaps on jabber.org, it appears to only
be updated every so often.  Also I'd be interested in checking things in
once I have these C++ classes ironed out.  I'm attempting to remove all
dependencies on MFC so that they would be much more cross platform.  (IF
anyone has plugin replacements for CString and CAsyncSocket, Email me, we'll
do lunch!! ;-P)
