[JDEV] jabber and MySQL and huh?

    Jabber does not require MySQL.  The reason that there is quite alot of
data in the config file regarding MySQL is becouse the MySQL provider
is/will be dynamic enough to allow great configurability.  The default file
based configuration requires little configuration, and hence, has a very
small section..  ;-P

    One a side note, one of the reason that the MySQL section *IS* so big is
becouse it can be configured for any database, and hence, users can
dynamically implement the database as they see fit.  A perfect example would
be user validation, based an an already existent datasource..

    To see the file based access stuffs, look in /var/spool/jspool (Not sure
if this is the exact location).
