Dear Eric,

	I just wonder how u can have the ability for various IRC clients,
which have their own protocols to connect to their server, to connect to a
Jabber. It is very interesting. Also, for example, Icq client has their own
protocol and encryption, which does not broadcast to the Internet, to
communicate with icq servers and other clients. Therefore, how can a jabber
client can connect to the icq server?
