If you are looking at employment opportunities with jabber.com you can give
me a call at the numbers below.  We are always looking for good developers
to come on board.

As for the threading libraries, Jer is the man to talk to on that.  I'll
make sure to pass this on to him (but I'm sure he has already seen it).

I have to agree with Kurt...  it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to
build the jabber server with libraries that are not cross-platform
compatible when there are already similar libraries that are cross-platform.

Also, what is the deal with jabber.com?  Are they hiring developers or is it
still all open source volunteers?  Who is a good person to talk to at
jabber.com to talk about this?
